Ohio Senate votes to ban stimulus mention on signs

A measure banning signs that tout federal stimulus spending along Ohio's roadways cleared the Republican-led Ohio Senate and is expected to pass the House, also controlled by the GOP.

State Sen. Tim Grendell, a northeast Ohio Republican who championed it as an amendment to the state transportation budget, said the proposal made common sense. The bill with Grendell's change cleared the Senate unanimously on Wednesday.

Grendell said taxpayer dollars were being spent to advertise the Obama administration. Democrats who at the time controlled the House blocked the proposal from becoming law last session.

The transportation budget allows Gov. John Kasich to manage transportation projects through public-private partnerships. It also allows the state to make money by selling sponsorships to brown signs that advertise attractions along roadsides.
