Guam - Senator Tommy Morrison has introduced legislation that changes the island's existing signage laws related to political signs. The republican lawmaker says Bill 293 provides tighter restrictions and increases fines.

The changes include:

  • Reduces the amount of time that signs can be erected on public property from 90 to 60 days prior to a special or primary election. 
  • Requires candidates to remove signs within 15 days after the election.
  • Imposes penalties of $25 per sign, per day.  

Senator Morrison says the bill will reduce the amount of time our community will have to deal with political signs, "Every two years our island gets cluttered with political signage for a good portion of the year. This takes away from the natural beauty of our island and creates a safety hazard around the island," Morrison said.  

 The bill is co-sponsored by Senator Aline Yamashita.
