Patriotic Signs Under Fire

Patriotic Signs Under Fire

"God Bless America" yard signs are in violation of Florida town's laws, but that may soon change.
(WFLA) Yard signs reading "God Bless America" are stirring up controversy in Bartow, Florida.

According to city laws the temporary signs, recently handed out by a local church, are not allowed to be displayed permanently.

They fall into a category including "For Sale" signs and political campaign signs.

Those who do not remove their signs could be fined or penalized.

To date, no one has received a penalty, and state law prohibits law enforcement officers from issuing citations for violations like this.

The city is considering a change to the laws to allow the signs.
