BILL NUMBER:S7322

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the highway law, in relation to designating a portion of the
state highway system in the town of Brookhaven as the "Richard Nappi
Memorial Bridge"

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL:
This legislation would designate the
bridge on Patchogue-Mount Sinai Road also known as County Road 83
which crosses interstate route 495 in the town of Brookhaven, the
"Richard Nappi Memorial Bridge."

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:
Section One amends the highway law by
adding a new section 343-z which designates a portion of the state
highway system the "Richard Nappi Memorial Bridge."

Section Two directs the commissioner of transportation to install and
maintain adequate signage as is designated by this act. The renaming
of the bridge is ceremonial in nature and the official name shall
remain unchanged to avoid confusion and limit disruption in commerce.

Section Three is the effective date.

JUSTIFICATION:
Lt. Richard A. Nappi, a member of the Fire Department
of New York's Engine 237 died in the line of duty on April 16, 2012
while battling a burning warehouse in Brooklyn. Lt.
Nappi, a resident of Farmingville, also volunteered with the
Farmingville Fire Department, and was a top instructor at the Suffolk
County Fire Academy in Yaphank.

Lt. Richard Nappi had dedicated his life to firefighting, and the
education of firefighters. He was honored as a hero in 1995, when he
pulled fellow firefighters out of danger in the thick of the Long
Island wildfires, and on September 11, 2001 he raced to lower
Manhattan following the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center,
even though it was his day off.

This dedication will memorialize Lt. Nappi in his community and remind
those who travel this bridge of the sacrifices he made, and the mark
that he left on those in his community.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
New Bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
None.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This act shall take effect immediately.
