WASHINGTON – Congressman Markwayne Mullin (OK-02) is asking for a legislative fix to help Oklahoma churches and service groups keep their highway signs up.

Acting under state law, some groups have erected highway signs but now face violation notices due to the size of those signs, which the FHWA requires to be no larger than 8 square feet.

Mar 1, 2013 Press Release
Today marks the beginning of the across-the-board spending cuts called the sequester. It is unfortunate that in Washington, nobody can agree to make the spending cuts needed to replace the sequester. Oklahomans have seen through the ratcheted-up political rhetoric coming from both the White House and Congress. They are ready for the dysfunction to stop and for this country to get back on stable fiscal footing by making common-sense cuts to federal spending that do not threaten public safety, national defense or the economy.
