New Virginia law limits local authority to prohibit political signs

The AP has this story that says the ACLU of Virginia is warning local governments to comply with a new Virginia law on political campaign signs.

The new law, Va. Code 15.2-109, says: "No locality shall have the authority to prohibit the display of political campaign signs on private property if the signs are in compliance with zoning and right-of-way restrictions applicable to temporary nonpolitical signs, if the signs have been posted with the permission of the owner."
