Read the first time May 31, 2016.
To whom was referred a Concurrent Resolution (S. 1341) to request the Department of Transportation name South Carolina Highway 34 from the Bishopville city limits to the Lee County/Kershaw County line as "Governor McLeod Highway", etc., respectfully
That they have duly and carefully considered the same and recommend that the same do pass:
JIMMY C. BALES for Committee.
TO REQUEST THE DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION NAME SOUTH CAROLINA HIGHWAY 34 FROM THE BISHOPVILLE CITY LIMITS TO THE LEE COUNTY/KERSHAW COUNTY LINE AS "GOVERNOR MCLEOD HIGHWAY" IN HONOR OF FORMER GOVERNOR THOMAS GORDON MCLEOD, AND ERECT APPROPRIATE MARKERS OR SIGNS REFLECTING THIS DESIGNATION.
Whereas, Thomas Gordon McLeod was elected Governor of South Carolina in 1922, and served with distinction for four years from 1923 to 1927; and
Whereas, Tom McLeod was elected to the House of Representatives from Sumter County in 1900; elected as the first Senator from Lee County in 1902; and elected Lieutenant Governor of South Carolina in 1906; and
Whereas, Tom McLeod, an 1892 graduate of Wofford College, attended the University of Virginia Law School and became a Bishopville attorney; and
Whereas, Governor McLeod was the architect of guaranteed state aid to the public schools, and was the primary founder of the state system of highways. As an early proponent of equal rights for women, he made at the 1924 Democratic National Convention the first formal nomination of a woman for the office of Vice President of the United States; and
Whereas, it is fitting and proper to acknowledge Governor McLeod's leadership by naming South Carolina Highway 34 from the Bishopville City limits to the Lee County/Kershaw County line as the "Governor McLeod Highway". Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the Senate, the House of Representatives concurring:
That members of the General Assembly request the Department of Transportation name South Carolina Highway 34 from the Bishopville City limits to the Lee County/Kershaw County line as "Governor McLeod Highway" and erect appropriate markers or signs reflecting this designation.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to the Department of Transportation.
