VERSIONS OF THIS BILL
January 17, 2008
S. Printed 1/17/08--H. [SEC 1/18/08 4:15 PM]
Read the first time June 20, 2007.
To whom was referred a Concurrent Resolution (H. 4277) to request that the Department of Transportation rename the "Wallace River Bridge" in the Hollywood section of Charleston County the "Peter Miller Bridge", 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 DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION RENAME THE "WALLACE RIVER BRIDGE" IN THE HOLLYWOOD SECTION OF CHARLESTON COUNTY THE "PETER MILLER BRIDGE" AND ERECT APPROPRIATE MARKERS OR SIGNS AT THIS BRIDGE THAT CONTAIN THE WORDS "PETER MILLER BRIDGE".
Whereas, Mr. Peter Miller has operated several businesses along the Savannah Highway in Charleston County for more than fifty years; and
Whereas, during this period, he has been a pillar of Charleston County, having made major contributions to the local, county, and state economies through his Exxon gasoline and convenience store, trucking-land fill company, package store, and entertainment/reception hall; and
Whereas, in the 1950s and 1960s, during the final days of the State's segregated past, "Peter Miller's" was one of the few entertainment establishments that African Americans could patronize in Charleston County; and
Whereas, the residents of Hollywood have benefited greatly from Mr. Miller's philanthropy, kindness, and can-do spirit; and
Whereas, it would be fitting and proper for the members of the General Assembly to forever recognize the many contributions that Mr. Peter Miller has made to his community by renaming the Wallace River Bridge in his honor. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring:
That the members of the South Carolina General Assembly, by this resolution, request that the Department of Transportation rename the "Wallace River Bridge" in Charleston County the "Peter Miller Bridge" and erect appropriate markers or signs at this bridge that contain the words "Peter Miller Bridge".
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to the Department of Transportation.
