Paying Back an Election? Yet Another LED Bill Coming Down the Pike

Planning Commission members divulged at their meeting tonight that another LED bill had been filed this week by at-Large council member Ronnie Steine. The focus of that bill is said to be specifically on billboards.

I confess that I have difficulty not feeling jaded even before reading this bill, since CM Steine received $7,500 in campaign contributions from the pro-LED Nashville Business Coalition PAC during his campaign last year.

UPDATE: We have a number and a summary with no details, yet:
BILL NO. BL2008-201 (Steine)
An ordinance amending Title 17 of the Metropolitan Code, Zoning Regulations, by amending Section 17.32.050 to add new regulations for digital billboards and to prohibit LED message boards in residential zoning districts, all of which is more particularly described herein (Proposal No. 2008Z-006T).
The devil will be in the details.
