HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) – Pennsylvania is hoping tourists will pursue happiness.

New welcome signs with the slogan “Pennsylvania. Pursue Your Happiness” are going up on the state’s interstates and major highways. They’ll be replacing ones that have been in place since 1997.

Officials say they want to promote a positive image of Pennsylvania.
