No permit required

An excellent editorial at the Charlotte Observer.

The beginning:

Here's a genuinely troubling idea: Groups of lawmakers in both the House and Senate are proposing to allow billboard companies and businesses to cut a lot more vegetation in the publicly-owned rights of way of many state roads and even some urban ones.
The end:

Given the dramatic change in roadside cutting this bill would allow, and the lack of a groundswell of support for cutting trees and vegetation in the Tar Heel landscape, this legislation ought to go on the cutting block to be sliced, diced and dumped. No DOT permit required.
