Current Bill Summary


HCS/SB 77 - Under current law, no outdoor advertising may be erected or maintained within 660 feet of certain federal highway right-of-ways. Directional signs, on premise signs, and outdoor advertising signs located in areas zoned commercial or industrial are exempt from this ban. This act would expand the types of directional signs which may be erected and maintained to include signs pertaining to cultural (including agricultural activities or attractions), scientific, educational, and religious sites (Section 226.520).

This act repeals the Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel Memorial Highway designation for a specified portion of Highway 160 in Greene County. In lieu of this designation, the act designates a different portion of U.S. Highway 160 in Green County as the "Rabbi Ernest I. Jacob Memorial Highway" (Section 227.410).

This act designates the portion of Interstate 40/64 in St. Louis County from the Boone's Crossing overpass at mile marker 17.0 west to the Spirit of St. Louis Airport overpass at mile marker 13.8 as the "Missouri State Highway Patrol Sergeant Joseph G. Schuengel Memorial Highway" (Section 227.424).

This act designates the portion of Interstate 70 from the eastern city limits of Independence west to the Kansas state line as the "Truman/Eisenhower Presidential Highway." The designation is contingent upon the same designation being made by the State of Kansas of the portion of Interstate 70 in Kansas from the Missouri state line west to Abilene, Kansas. This language is contained in HB 814 (2011)(Section 227.425).

This act designates the portion of State Highway 25 in the counties of Dunklin and Stoddard as the "Representative Otto Bean Memorial Highway" (Section 227.429). This portion of the act is identical to HB 895 (2011).

This act designates the portion of State Highway 30 from State Route NN north three miles to 1/10 of a mile southwest of old State Highway 30 in Jefferson County as the "SFC Wm. Brian Woods, Jr. Memorial Highway" (Section 227.430). This portion of the act is identical to HB 912 (2011).
