Bill May Change How Billboards Treated in Eminent Domain Cases

The way that billboards are treated in potential eminent domain cases may change soon.  House Bill 645 was recently approved by the North Carolina Senate, and some opponents say the bill goes too far.  The Bill, which is supported by N.C. Outdoor Advertising Association, relaxes restrictions on moving billboards when the owner of the land no longer wants the sign, or when the land is being acquired through eminent domain.  But some localities, as well as Scenic North Carolina, and the Sierra Club, oppose the Bill’s language.
