Could you soon be calling Spokane's iconic bridge the Burger King Monroe Street Bridge? What about the Microsoft Expressway through Seattle?

The bill allows state and local agencies to sell naming rights to public buildings and infrastructure, similar to what some sports stadiums do now.

Critics, though, say it could get out of hand and that it's not worth sacrificing the identity of iconic buildings for a small amount of cash. What do you think: should the state sell naming rights?
