The InterNeighborhood Council is gearing up for another billboard battle, this time at the General Assembly.
Tuesday night, the group unanimously approved a resolution opposing any new restrictions on local governments' authority to regulate billboards.
No such bill has been introduced, but State Sen. Floyd McKissick and others have said that rumors abound that billboard interests are drafting restrictive legislation for the current session.
Some neighborhood delegates at Tuesday's meeting suggested waiting until a bill is actually introduced, but INC President Tom Miller, who introduced the resolution, said waiting could be risky.
"INC meets once a month and the General Assembly meets once a day," he said. "If we wait we may miss the vote [in the legislature], we may not be able to do what we can do and I'm not sure how much that may be."
