LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 2829, as introduced, Cervantes. Courtesy signs: state or county highways.
Existing law authorizes county officials, with respect to any state or county highway within their respective jurisdictions and upon a resolution adopted by the respective county board of supervisors, to place and maintain, or cause to be placed and maintained, at or near the county line and at county expense, signs stating, or to add to their existing signs, the statement “Where We Honor Veterans.” Existing law requires the approval of the Department of Transportation if those signs are on a state highway.
This bill would make a nonsubstantive change to these provisions.
