State lawmakers hope to improve Michigan's roadside scenery by banning all new billboards until 2009.

The Senate Transportation Committee voted 3-0 Tuesday to approve bills that would bar the state from issuing new billboard permits unless the applicants give up permits they already hold. The full Senate could vote on the proposed moratorium next month.

About 14,500 permits for billboards along highways have been issued in Michigan, and the state Department of Transportation grants about 272 new permits each year, according to a Senate Fiscal Agency analysis.

The Michigan Association of Organizations for Reform Now, known as Michigan ACORN, has a proposal that would increase the minimum wage in 2007 and index it to the rate of inflation beginning in July of that year. The rate was last increased in 1997.
