S. Printed 3/11/20--H.
Read the first time February 19, 2020.
To whom was referred a Concurrent Resolution (H. 5240) to request the Department of Transportation name the portion of Interstate Highway 85 in Greenville County located at exit 51 "Law Enforcement Officers Interchange" and erect appropriate signs or markers, 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 THE PORTION OF INTERSTATE HIGHWAY 85 IN GREENVILLE COUNTY LOCATED AT EXIT 51 "LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS INTERCHANGE" AND ERECT APPROPRIATE SIGNS OR MARKERS AT THIS EXIT CONTAINING THESE WORDS, AND NAME THE PORTION OF INTERSTATE HIGHWAY 385 IN GREENVILLE COUNTY AT EXIT 36 "GATEWAY TO THE VETERANS' CORRIDOR OF HONOR" AND ERECT APPROPRIATE SIGNS OR MARKERS AT THESE EXITS CONTAINING THESE WORDS.
Whereas, the men and women who serve as law enforcement officers place their lives in danger every day as they protect our citizens and neighborhoods from the criminal element in our society; and
Whereas, each year, our nation loses between one hundred forty and one hundred sixty law enforcement officers in the line of duty; and
Whereas, in 2014, the members of the General Assembly recognized the United States servicemen and servicewomen who defended our freedom in the seven major wars our nation fought during the twentieth and twenty-first centuries by having signs erected along Interstate Highway 385 that commemorate World War I, World War II, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, the Persian Gulf War, and Undeclared Wars; and
Whereas, it would be fitting and proper to recognize both our law enforcement officers, and servicemen and servicewomen who have fought in recent wars by naming portions of the interchange located at the intersection of Interstate Highways 85 and 385 in Greenville in their honor. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring:
That the members of the South Carolina General Assembly request the Department of Transportation name the portion of Interstate Highway 85 in Greenville County located at Exit 51 "Law Enforcement Officers Interchange" and erect appropriate signs or markers at this exit containing these words, and name the portion of Interstate Highway 385 in Greenville County at Exit 36 "Gateway to The Veterans' Corridor of Honor" and erect appropriate signs or markers at these exits containing these words.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to the Department of Transportation.
