To whom was referred a Concurrent Resolution (S. 880), to request the Department of Highways and Public Transportation to name the bridge, 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 DEPARTMENT OF HIGHWAYS AND PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION TO NAME THE BRIDGE THAT SPANS THE CONGAREE RIVER ON THE SOUTHEASTERN BELTWAY FOR JUDGE ALEXANDER M. SANDERS, JR.
Whereas, Alexander M. Sanders, Jr., has always been active in state and local affairs including service as president of the South Carolina Trial Lawyers Association and president of the American Bar Association Council of Chief Judges of Courts of Appeals; and
Whereas, he has served on the Adjunct Faculties of both the University of South Carolina School of Law and Harvard Law School; and
Whereas, Alex Sanders' public service includes being a member of the South Carolina House of Representatives (1967-1974) and the South Carolina Senate (1977-1983); and
Whereas, he was elected as Chief Judge of the South Carolina Court of Appeals on July 27, 1983, and has served continuously since; and
Whereas, in order to recognize his remarkable contributions and the distinguished career of this great South Carolinian, the members of the General Assembly believe it would be fitting to name the bridge on the Southeastern Beltway over the Congaree River in honor of Alexander M. Sanders, Jr., in recognition of his many years of honorable service and outstanding contributions to the State of South Carolina. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the Senate, the House of Representatives concurring:
That the members of the General Assembly hereby request the Department of Highways and Public Transportation to name the bridge that spans the Congaree River on the Southeastern Beltway for Judge Alexander M. Sanders, Jr.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to the South Carolina Department of Highways and Public Transportation.
