To whom was referred a Concurrent Resolution (H. 4598), to request the South Carolina Department of Highways and Public Transportation to name the bridge on South Carolina Highway 174, etc., respectfully
That they have duly and carefully considered the same, and recommend that the same do pass:
SAMUEL R. FOSTER, for Committee.
TO REQUEST THE SOUTH CAROLINA DEPARTMENT OF HIGHWAYS AND PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION TO NAME THE BRIDGE ON SOUTH CAROLINA HIGHWAY 174 IN CHARLESTON COUNTY CROSSING THE DAWHOO RIVER AS THE McKINLEY WASHINGTON, JR. BRIDGE.
Whereas, the Honorable McKinley Washington, Jr. has been a distinguished member of the General Assembly since 1975, first serving in the House of Representatives from 1975 through 1990, followed by his current service in the Senate beginning in 1991; and
Whereas, throughout his tenure in the General Assembly he has represented the citizens of his district with honor and integrity serving them and the State to the utmost of his ability; and
Whereas, his ministerial training and his experience as a spiritual and religious leader have been cornerstones for his leadership in the church and his community and have served him well throughout his terms in the General Assembly where he has served as Chairman of the Operations and Management of the House Committee, Chairman of the Legislative Black Caucus, and Vice Chairman of the Charleston County Legislative Delegation; and
Whereas, his colleagues in the General Assembly believe it would be fitting to pay tribute to McKinley Washington, Jr. for all he has done to make his district and this State a more enjoyable and satisfying place to live by naming a landmark in Charleston County in his honor. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring:
That the members of the General Assembly by this resolution request the South Carolina Department of Highways and Public Transportation to name the bridge on South Carolina Highway 174 over the Dawhoo River in Charleston County as the "McKinley Washington, Jr. Bridge" in honor of the distinguished service that Senator Washington has given to the district in which he has served and to the State.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to the Department of Highways and Public Transportation.
