State lawmakers are hearing a bill that would prohibit porn shops and strip clubs from using billboards to advertise along Missouri highways. The bill will also prohibit anyone younger than 21 from setting up signs or billboards of this nature.

Representative David Pearce is sponsoring this bill and says these billboards send a bad message to drivers.
