TO REQUEST THE DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION NAME THE PORTION OF DAVE LYLE BOULEVARD FROM ITS INTERSECTION WITH INTERSTATE HIGHWAY 77 TO ITS INTERSECTION WITH UNITED STATES HIGHWAY 21 IN ROCK HILL "DEPUTY JAMES BRENT MCCANTS MEMORIAL BOULEVARD" AND ERECT APPROPRIATE MARKERS OR SIGNS CONTAINING THIS DESIGNATION.
Whereas, on Friday night, September 25, 1992, twenty-three year old York County Sheriff Deputy James Brent McCants stopped a car on Dave Lyle Boulevard in Rock Hill for driving without its lights on; and
Whereas, a short forty-five seconds later, a passerby radioed "may day" via Deputy McCants' radio; and
Whereas, that evening, Deputy McCants, an eighteen-month veteran of the York County Sheriff's Office, was shot and killed in the line of duty by two individuals who later were apprehended and convicted of his murder; and
Whereas, it would be fitting and proper to forever remember this fallen officer by having a portion of Dave Lyle Boulevard in Rock Hill named in his honor. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring:
That members of the General Assembly request the Department of Transportation to name the portion of Dave Lyle Boulevard from its intersection with interstate Highway 77 to its intersection with United States Highway 21 in Rock Hill "Deputy James Brent McCants Memorial Boulevard" and erect appropriate markers or signs that contain this designation.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be presented to the Department of Transportation.
