Bill Title: Reinserts the provisions of the introduced bill with the following changes: Provides that the definition of "sign" means any outdoor sign, display, device, notice, figure painting, drawing, message, placard, poster, billboard, or other thing, which is designed (rather than designated), intended, or used to advertise or inform, and of which any part of the existing or intended advertising or informative contents is or will be visible from any place on the main-traveled way of a controlled portion (rather than any portion) of an Interstate or primary highway and which is adjacent to and within 660 feet (rather than within 660 feet) of the nearest edge of the right-of-way of such highway, and where the sign is operated or owned by a person or entity earning remuneration directly or indirectly for (i) the existence or placement of the outdoor sign or (ii) the placement of the message on the outdoor sign. Provides that the definition of "erect" does not include the attachment of a vinyl substrate to a sign that was permitted or registered to display, in another medium, advertising or other information and that does not cause a substantial change or modification that would terminate nonconforming rights. Provides that the Department of Transportation shall accord lawful status to the registered sign at issue in the decision of the Illinois Appellate Court captioned as Image Media Advertising, Inc., v. Illinois Department of Transportation, No. 1-20-0830. Provides that the Department shall also allow for the continued usage of that sign by the owner of the building or its authorized agent without requiring a new permit or registration. Makes other changes. Effective immediately.
