They don’t call him “Billboard Borrelli” for nothing. After failing at the legislature last year, Lake Havasu City state senator Sonny Borrelli has seen his billboard bill pass the state house and senate before getting signed into law by Governor Ducey on May 1.
The measure repeals an electronic billboard prohibition in parts of Mohave County. The previous ban aimed to maintain dark sky to protect Arizona’s astronomical observatories.
Borrelli and supporters argued Mohave County is far enough removed from the observatories that the billboard ban isn’t needed.
