Posted by Shawn Maclauchlan

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Liquor ads could soon be coming to billboards.

At the General Assembly Wednesday, the House passed a bill that expands rights for liquor companies to advertise on roadway signs.

There are some restrictions - they're only allowed in industrial and commercial areas, not agricultural or residential areas.
