HAMPTON BAYS -

People are rallying against the Shinnecock Indian Nation's plans to build two 61-foot-tall electronic signs on Sunrise Highway in Hampton Bays.

The Shinnecock Indian Nation says the advertising billboards would generate much-needed revenue for its reservation.

Critics say the billboards do not fit in with the character of the community and may violate federal highway safety laws.
