Johnson in 1965 at the behest of his wife, Lady Bird Johnson, regulates advertisements along the interstate and federally funded highways. The law requires church signs next to a highway to be no larger than 8 square feet, less than half the size of a regulation basketball backboard. Signs for civic groups and directional signs are also subject to the size rule. States that choose not to enforce the law can lose a portion their federal highway funding more
