Read the first time February 12, 2004.
To whom was referred a Concurrent Resolution (S. 256) to request that the South Carolina Department of Transportation erect directional and historical signs at locations which are visible to the motoring public reading "Historical Tuskegee Airmen Memorial" and that these, etc., respectfully
That they have duly and carefully considered the same and recommend that the same do pass:
ROBERT W. LEACH, SR. for Committee.
TO REQUEST THAT THE SOUTH CAROLINA DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION ERECT DIRECTIONAL AND HISTORICAL SIGNS AT LOCATIONS WHICH ARE VISIBLE TO THE MOTORING PUBLIC READING "HISTORICAL TUSKEGEE AIRMEN MEMORIAL" AND THAT THESE SIGNS MUST BE PLACED AT APPROPRIATE LOCATIONS ON INTERSTATE 95 NEAR EXITS 53 AND 57, WITH DIRECTIONAL SIGNS AT THE OFF-RAMP TERMINATIONS, IN COLLETON COUNTY.
Whereas, the Historical Tuskegee Airmen Memorial is located in Colleton County; and
Whereas, this national landmark is an important treasure of South Carolina, which should be advertised so that motorists traveling along Interstate 95 can view and appreciate this memorial; and
Whereas, there is no appropriate signage directing visitors to the Historical Tuskegee Airmen Memorial; and
Whereas, the success of the Historical Tuskegee Airmen Memorial is critically important to preserving and promoting the heritage and culture of South Carolina. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the Senate, the House of Representatives concurring:
That the members of the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina request that the South Carolina Department of Transportation take appropriate steps to post directional and historical signs and that these signs must be erected in locations on Interstate 95 near Exits 53 and 57, with directional signs at the off-ramp terminations, in Colleton County, which are visible to the motoring public so that they can safely find their way to the "Historical Tuskegee Airmen Memorial".
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to the South Carolina Department of Transportation.
