To whom was referred a Concurrent Resolution (H. 5025), requesting the Department of Transportation to name the portion of South Carolina Highway 81, etc., respectfully
That they have duly and carefully considered the same, and recommend that the same do pass:
RICHARD M. QUINN, JR., for Committee.
REQUESTING THE DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION TO NAME THE PORTION OF SOUTH CAROLINA HIGHWAY 81 FROM ANDERSON TO INTERSTATE 85 IN HONOR OF OUR DISTINGUISHED FRIEND AND COLLEAGUE, REPRESENTATIVE JOHN W. TUCKER, JR., OF ANDERSON.
Whereas, the members of the General Assembly note that their friend and colleague, John W. Tucker, Jr., representing House District 6 in Anderson County, has chosen not to seek reelection this year; and
Whereas, since his election to the House of Representatives in 1984, he has served the people of the 6th district with great distinction and singular energy, working on their behalf and in behalf of all citizens of South Carolina as he has so effectively moved through the corridors of power; and
Whereas, the career of this legislator is an exemplar of the high calling of public service and a benchmark for those who continue to serve and who in the future will take up the burden of office; and
Whereas, it is appropriate that the portion of South Carolina Highway 81 from the City of Anderson continuing to Interstate 85 be named "John W. Tucker, Jr. Highway" as a continuing tribute to his years of labor on behalf of the citizens of the district. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring:
That the members of the General Assembly request that the Department of Transportation designate that portion of South Carolina Highway 81 in Anderson County described in this resolution as "John W. Tucker, Jr. Highway" and install appropriate markers or signs at places along the highway as the department considers advisable containing the words "John W. Tucker, Jr. Highway".
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to the Department of Transportation and Representative Tucker.
