The Dominion Post

CHARLESTON, W.Va. — The bill to allow private companies to sponsor highway rest areas passed another milestone April 4, winning unanimous approval of the Senate Transportation and Infrastructure Committee.

HB 2694 would allow the Division of Highways to obtain private sponsorships for rest areas, welcome centers and roads. In return for a fee, the sponsor would be allowed to place a federally approved sign or plaque at the site identifying it as the sponsor.

The committee approved the bill in a voice vote and sent it to the full Senate.
