    5         Section 18. Subsection (20) is added to section 479.16,
    6  Florida Statutes, to read:
    7         479.16 Signs for which permits are not required.—The
    8  following signs are exempt from the requirement that a permit
    9  for a sign be obtained under this chapter but are required to
   10  comply with s. 479.11(4)-(8), and the provisions of subsections
   11  (15)-(20) (15)-(19) may not be implemented or continued if the
   12  Federal Government notifies the department that implementation
   13  or continuation will adversely affect the allocation of federal
   14  funds to the department:
   15         (20) Signs that are located within the controlled area of a
   16  federal-aid primary highway but which are on a parcel adjacent
   17  to an off-ramp to the termination point of a turnpike system, if
   18  there is no directional decision to be made by a driver, the
   19  signs are primarily facing the off-ramp, and the signs have been
   20  in existence since at least 1995.
   22  If the exemptions in subsections (15)-(20) (15)-(19) are not
   23  implemented or continued due to notification from the Federal
   24  Government that the allocation of federal funds to the
   25  department will be adversely impacted, the department shall
   26  provide notice to the sign owner that the sign must be removed
   27  within 30 days after receipt of the notice. If the sign is not
   28  removed within 30 days after receipt of the notice by the sign
   29  owner, the department may remove the sign, and the costs
   30  incurred in connection with the sign removal shall be assessed
   31  against and collected from the sign owner.
