HARTNETT INTERCHANGE" AND TO ERECT APPROPRIATE MARKERS OR SIGNS AT THIS EXIT THAT CONTAIN THE WORDS "CONGRESSMAN THOMAS F. HARTNETT INTERCHANGE".
Whereas, Congressman Thomas F. Hartnett was born in Charleston on August 7, 1941; and

Whereas, Congressman Hartnett honorably served his country as a member of the United States Air Force Reserve and the South Carolina Air National Guard; and
Whereas, he was a distinguished member of the South Carolina House of Representatives from 1965 to 1973, member of the South Carolina Senate from 1973 to 1981, and a member of the United States Congress from 1981 to 1987; and
Whereas, he has served as president of Hartnett Realty Company since 1987; and
Whereas, it would be fitting and proper to name an interchange in Charleston County in honor of this distinguished son of South Carolina. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring:
That the members of the General Assembly request the Department of Transportation name the interchange located at Exit 211 along Interstate Highway 26 in Charleston County "Congressman Thomas F. Hartnett Interchange" and erect appropriate markers or signs at this exit that contain the words "Congressman Thomas F. Hartnett Interchange".
