Mr. Speaker, the Federal Highway Administration is ordering all local governments to go out and purchase new road signs. Why? Because the brilliant bureaucrats say these signs are easier to read. It took 800 pages of "easy-to-read" regulations and redtape to mandate making letters two inches taller. The new signs must be reflective and cannot be in all caps. New York City alone will have to spend $27 million just to revamp their sufficient signs. Millions will be spent by other financially troubled cities.

Why is this happening? Because, as the saying goes, "We're from government, and we're here to help you." What if the towns refuse to replace their perfectly good signs with the federally authorized signs? Will the intrusive federal street sign police come out and cart the city officials off to jail for road sign violations? And what's next? Will the Feds soon require signs be in multiple languages? Once again, big government solves problems that don't exist and answers questions no one is asking. And that's just the way it is.
