Read the first time January 26, 2021.
To whom was referred a Concurrent Resolution (S. 179) to request the Department of Transportation name the portion of United States Highway 701 North from its intersection with the city limits of the City of Loris to a point one mile north, etc., respectfully
That they have duly and carefully considered the same and recommend that the same do pass:
DENNIS C. MOSS for Committee.
TO REQUEST THE DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION NAME THE PORTION OF UNITED STATES HIGHWAY 701 NORTH FROM ITS INTERSECTION WITH THE CITY LIMITS OF THE CITY OF LORIS TO A POINT ONE MILE NORTH OF THIS INTERSECTION, AND THE PORTION OF UNITED STATES HIGHWAY 701 SOUTH FROM ITS INTERSECTION WITH THE CITY LIMITS OF THE CITY OF LORIS TO A POINT ONE MILE SOUTH OF THIS INTERSECTION "HENRY L. NICHOLS HIGHWAY", AND ERECT APPROPRIATE SIGNS OR MARKERS ALONG BOTH PORTIONS OF HIGHWAY THAT CONTAIN THESE WORDS.
Whereas, the Honorable Henry L. Nichols served the State of South Carolina as the first African American mayor of the City of Loris; and
Whereas, during his tenure, Mayor Nichols willingly gave of his time and talents to support his beloved city, even signing checks while in the hospital to insure the city would keep running and his work was being done; and
Whereas, the City of Loris owes a special debt of gratitude to Mayor Nichols for his leadership and loyalty to what he loved; and
Whereas, Mayor Nichols is owed the gratitude of all South Carolinians for his twenty years of honorable service in the U.S. Marine Corps, from which he retired as a Lieutenant Colonel; and
Whereas, for his exemplary service to the citizens of the Loris community, the State of South Carolina, and our country, it is fitting and proper for portions of United States Highway 701 in Horry County to be named in his honor. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the Senate, the House of Representatives concurring:
That the members of the General Assembly request the Department of Transportation name the portion of United States Highway 701 North from its intersection with the city limits of the City of Loris to a point one mile north of this intersection, and the portion of United States Highway 701 South from its intersection with the city limits of the City of Loris to a point one mile south of this intersection the "Henry L. Nichols Highway", and erect appropriate signs or markers along both portions of highway that contain these words.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to the Department of Transportation.
