Denver (AP) - Don't like the highway signs promoting Colorado's stimulus spending ``Putting America to Work'' at road construction sites?
State highway officials insist the promotional signs are required and will stay up. That's despite complaints from Republicans that the signs amount to political boosterism for a stimulus spending package driven by ruling Democrats in Washington.
There are dozens of the signs on road construction projects across the state. Medium-sized signs cost about $750 to $1,250, with large signs costing up to $2,000.
State highway officials say the signs were encouraged by federal highway authorities and are meant to show people how their tax money is being spent.
