There is a battle between the US Dept. of Highways and Gov. Cuomo’s NYS Department of Transportation over the state’s right to keep illegal “I Love New York” billboard sized signs along highways in the state.
The state wants to keeps the I Love New York signs since it aids the state in its efforts to direct tourism in the state. The signs both direct tourists to specific places nearby and also advertise a state operated tourism phone app which when downloaded will give directions to places the state has decided are places for tourists to visit.
