House committee substitute to the 1st edition makes the following changes.

Amends GS 136-131, concerning the removal of existing outdoor advertising, by removing from the factors that are to be used to determine just compensation the reasonable expectation of lease renewal for a period in excess of that stated in the lease for original and renewal terms. 

Amends GS 136-131.3 by amending one of the requirements to be met when relocating and reconstructing outdoor advertising to provide that the new site can be any area (was, must be any area) within 660 feet of the nearest edge of the right-of-way of a highway within the same zoning jurisdiction or within the same city or county territorial limits if the initial outdoor advertising sign was located in an unzoned area before the relocation (previously did not specify before the relocation). Deletes the provision prohibiting a municipality, county, local. or regional zoning authority, or other political subdivision from regulating or prohibiting any relocation of outdoor advertising that is authorized by the statute. Makes additional clarifying changes.
