I Love NY Highway signs called waste of money

Feb 19, 2017

Albany and Washington disagree on usage of New York State's I Love NY highway signs.

Federal highway officials say the signs do not comply with federal regulations. The Cuomo administration argues the signs help with tourism by highlighting local products and sites. New York spent $8.1 million to install the signs. Republican Assemblyman Steve Hawley says that money should have gone towards more important items. He calls the signs an example of wasteful spending.
