S. Printed 5/27/15--H.
Read the first time May 14, 2015.
To whom was referred a Concurrent Resolution (H. 4185) to request that the Department of Transportation name the interchange located at the intersection of Interstate Highway 20 and United States Highway 321, 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 THAT THE DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION NAME THE INTERCHANGE LOCATED AT THE INTERSECTION OF INTERSTATE HIGHWAY 20 AND UNITED STATES HIGHWAY 321 IN RICHLAND COUNTY "WILLIE R. PORTEE INTERCHANGE" AND ERECT APPROPRIATE MARKERS OR SIGNS AT THIS INTERCHANGE THAT CONTAIN THIS DESIGNATION.
Whereas, Mr. Willie R. Portee began his working career as a correctional officer with the South Carolina Department of Corrections on September 9, 1969; and
Whereas, he rose through the Department of Corrections ranks and was appointed Warden of Walden Correctional Institution and remained in this position until April 27, 1984; and
Whereas, after leaving the Department of Corrections, he was employed for a number of years with the South Carolina Department of Juvenile Justice; and
Whereas, it would be fitting and proper to recognize the service that Mr. Portee has rendered to this State by having an interchange along Interstate Highway 20 named in his honor. 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 name the interchange located at the intersection of Interstate Highway 20 and United States Highway 321 in Richland County "Willie R. Portee Interchange" and erect appropriate markers or signs at this interchange that contain this designation.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to the Department of Transportation.
