BILL NUMBER:S2037

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the highway law, in relation to desig-
nating a portion of the state highway system in the city of New York as
the "Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Parkway"

PURPOSE: To honor Theodore Roosevelt, our 26th president.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Amends the Highway Law to add a new section
designating the Grand Central Parkway the Theodore Roosevelt Memorial
Parkway,

JUSTIFICATION: Theodore Roosevelt was a native New Yorker who achieved
greatness in multiple endeavors. His indomitable spirit led a frail
young boy to lead a famous charge up San Juan Hill, be roughneck cowboy
in an untamed west and then the New York City Police Commissioner,
Assemblyman, Vice President and the 20h President. During his life, he
opened our national parks, built the Panama Canal, led the United States
onto the world stage when he sent the "Great White fleet" around the
world. He took on the trusts and won antitrust legislation, expanded our
national park system and won a Nobel Prize for mediating the Russo-Japa-
nese War. He was truly the quintessential American looked up to by those
generations that followed him. This legislation would honor the memory
of one of our most distinguished New Yorkers by designating the Grand
Central Parkway as the Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Parkway.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: 2012 S.7222.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: To be determined.

EFFECTIVE DATE: Immediately,

  Roosevelt Memorial Parkway"

  THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section  1.  Legislative  findings.  The legislature hereby finds that
Theodore Roosevelt, the twenty-sixth President of the United States, was
one of our greatest  New  Yorkers.  His  dedication  to  public  service
spanned  local,  state  and  federal  government levels as New York City
Police Commissioner, Assemblyman, Governor, Assistant Secretary  of  the
Navy,  Vice  President  and  President.  A  native of New York, Teddy or
"T.R." as he was called, was a  Nobel  peace  prize  winner,  war  hero,
trustbuster, and conservationist. It is the intent of this act to recog-
nize the many contributions of Theodore Roosevelt to our state and coun-
try.
  S 2. The highway law is amended by adding a new section 343-aa to read
as follows:
  S 343-AA.  PORTION OF THE STATE HIGHWAY SYSTEM TO BE DESIGNATED AS THE
"THEODORE  ROOSEVELT  MEMORIAL  PARKWAY".  ALL THAT PORTION OF THE STATE
HIGHWAY SYSTEM KNOWN AS THE GRAND CENTRAL PARKWAY BEGINNING IN THE  CITY
OF  NEW  YORK  AT  THE  SOUTHERN END OF THE ROBERT F. KENNEDY BRIDGE AND
ENDING AT THE NORTHERN STATE PARKWAY, ALSO KNOWN AS  THE  "PURPLE  HEART
WAY",  AT THE NASSAU COUNTY LINE IN THE VILLAGE OF LAKE SUCCESS, TOWN OF

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
                                                           LBD06147-01-3

S. 2037                             2                            A. 2078

  S  3. The commissioner of transportation shall provide for the instal-
lation and maintenance of adequate signing of the state  highway  system
as  designated  pursuant  to  section two of this act. However, to avoid
confusion and to limit any possible disruption of commerce,  the  desig-
nation  called for pursuant to section two of this act shall be one of a
ceremonial nature and the official name of such  highway  shall  not  be
changed as a result of this act.
  S 4. This act shall take effect immediately.
