BILL NUMBER:A7347

TITLE OF BILL:

An act to amend the highway law, in relation to designating portions
of the state highway system as the "Rochester Veterans Memorial
Highway"

PURPOSE:

To designate a portion of State Route 15A in the City of Rochester,
County of Monroe, as the "Rochester Veterans Memorial Highway."

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Section 1 - Amends the Highway Law, adding Section 344-d, designating
the portion of State Route Fifteen A that runs from the intersection
of Mt. Hope Avenue, continuing in a generally southerly direction, and
terminating at the northerly line of the Erie Canal, as the "Rochester
Veterans Memorial Highway."

Section 2 - Provides for the signing and maintenance of this
designation, and provides that this designation is of a ceremonial
nature and does not change the official name of State Route Fifteen A.

Section 3 - Provides that this act shall take effect immediately.

JUSTIFICATION:

This designation, along an approximately 0.8-mile stretch of our state
highway system, serves as a small token of appreciation to all of our
current and former United States Armed Forces services members, from
all areas, including the fallen, the wounded, those unaccounted for
and former prisoners of war, in humble recognition of their service,
sacrifice and commitment to our country and the defense of our
freedoms. This highway is a symbolic reminder of the cooperation and
camaraderie felt by all American service members, past and present,
hailing from the city of Rochester, all of Monroe County, New York, as
well as all the other counties traversed by State Route 15A.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:

New bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:

None.

EFFECTIVE DATE:

This act shall take effect immediately.
