At the federal level, the Highway Beautification Act of 1965 (HBA, P.L. 89-285) controls outdoor advertising along 306,000 miles of Federal-Aid Primary, interstate and National Highway System (NHS) roads. Signed into law by President Lyndon B. Johnson on October 22, 1965, the HBA (P.L. 89-285) allows the location of billboards in commercial and industrial areas, mandates a state compliance program, requires the development of state standards, promotes the expeditious removal of illegal signs, and requires just compensation for takings.
The U.S. Department of Transporation, through its Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), provides outdoor advertising program guidance at the federal level. At the state level, each state's Department of Transporation administers and enforces outdoor advertising Permit programs, monitors the erection and maintenance of billboards, and provides statistics on nonconforming and illegal sign removals.
