Lawmakers presented a bill that would eliminate porn shops and strip clubs from advertising along Missouri highways. The proposed law would prohibit these advertisements from standing within a mile of the road. But some members of the House Tourism Committee show concern about this bill.

Representative Melba Curls from Jackson county says this bill goes too far.

The head of Missouri's Outdoor Advertising Association also expressed the concerns of advertising companies throughout the state. From Jefferson City, I'm Monica Walter.
