Two Oklahoma Senators Propose Bill To Create President Donald J. Trump Highway on Route 66

Two Oklahoma senators announced today that they have launched an effort to rename part of Route 66 and call it the President Donald J. Trump Highway.

Liberals are already howling with rage, but the bill makes sense to the GOP lawmakers who point out all that Trump has done for the heartland.

In any event, the bill will not require any taxpayer funds so expect it to pass in the conservative state’s legislature.

From Koco: According to Senate Bill 1089, the renamed section of Route 66 will begin at the intersection of Highland Avenue near Miami and extend north and east through Commerce to the intersection of Industrial Parkway in Ottawa County.

“President Trump has done an outstanding job on behalf of our nation and Oklahoma,” said state Sen. Nathan Dahm, R-Broken Arrow.

“We feel like this is a perfect opportunity to commemorate the great impact his leadership has had on improving the economy and bringing jobs and commerce back to our great state.”

According to a news release, Senate Bill 1089 will require that the necessary funds needed for the cost of the signs be covered by the Senate and House authors and co-authors, meaning there will be no cost to the taxpayers for the signs.

“Oklahoma is in the heart of America,” said state Sen. Marty Quinn, R-Claremore.

“Its conservative values of freedom, liberty and limited government are what our country was built on and has made America a strong nation and President Trump continues to fight for these values.”

From okcfox:

The renamed section of highway would begin at the intersection of Highland Avenue near Miami and extend north and east through Commerce to the intersection of Industrial Parkway in Ottawa County.

“It is an honor to have authored this legislation that will help memorialize President Trump and his contribution to keeping America free and prosperous,” said Roberts.

SB 1089 will require that the necessary funds needed for the costs of the signs be covered by the Senate and House authors and co-authors.

There will be no cost to the taxpayers for the signs. The bill will be available to be heard in the next legislative session beginning February 2020.
