Two Republican House Members from South Carolina have just introduced a new bill that would rename a section of road in South Carolina as the “President Donald J. Trump Interchange”
The summary of SC House Bill 5009 reads:
A CONCURRENT RESOLUTION TO REQUEST THE DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION NAME THE INTERCHANGE LOCATED AT THE INTERSECTION OF INTERSTATE HIGHWAY 85 AND INTERSTATE HIGHWAY 385 IN GREENVILLE COUNTY "PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP INTERCHANGE" AND ERECT APPROPRIATE SIGNS OR MARKERS AT THIS LOCATION CONTAINING THESE WORDS.
The interchange is located about 80 miles from Charlotte on the outskirts of Greenville, SC. It’s part of South Carolina’s massive $300 million Gateway Project, which just opened this past December.
HB 5009 goes on to say:
“Whereas, President Donald Trump fights tirelessly to restore our American values and defeat the radical left; and
Whereas, President Trump has kept his promises to improve the economy, build the wall, defund Planned Parenthood, cut ISIS off at the head, and stop endless wars; and
Whereas, President Trump has the full support of countless South Carolinians and deserves to be honored. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring:
That the members of the South Carolina General Assembly, by this resolution, request the Department of Transportation name the interchange located at the intersection of Interstate Highway 85 and Interstate Highway 385 in Greenville County “President Donald J. Trump Interchange” and erect appropriate signs or markers at this location containing these words.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to the Department of Transportation.”
The bill is now moving on to the Committee on Invitations and Memorial Resolutions for a vote.
What do you think about the new name?
