BILL NUMBER:S3935 REVISED 5/16/13

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the highway law, in relation to
designating New York state route 375 from the intersection of New York
state route 28 in West Hurley to the intersection of New York state
route 212 in Woodstock as the "Levon Helm Memorial Boulevard"

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: To honor the life and music of Mark
Levon Helm, longtime Woodstock, NY resident and Grammy winning
percussionist who achieved fame as the drummer and frequent lead and
backing vocalist for The Band.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:

Section 1: Amends the Highway Law by adding a new section 344-b which
designates the portion of the highway system on New York State Route
375 beginning at the intersection of New York State Route 28 in West
Hurley and ending at the intersection of New York State Route 212 in
Woodstock as the "Levon Helm Memorial Boulevard".

Section 2: Requires the Commissioner of the Department of
Transportation to provide for the installation and maintenance of
adequate signing of the state highway system as designated pursuant to
this act.

Section 3: Effective date.

JUSTIFICATION: This highway will be designated in recognition of
Levon Helm, Grammy winning artist and longtime Woodstock, New York
resident. The naming of this highway which runs near Helm's barn where
his famous "Midnight Rambles" were held and near "Big Pink," the home
where The Band produced their award winning album by the same name,
will honor Helm's memory while distinguishing that the Woodstock area
had a significant impact on his life.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: The cost of proper signage along the route which
is expected to cost between $3,000 and $4,000.

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.
