BILL NUMBER:S4971

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the state law, the highway law and the
administrative code of the city of New York in relation to renaming
the Staten Island Expressway the "POW-MIA Memorial Highway"

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL:

This bill would change the official name of the Staten Island
Expressway to the POW-MIA Highway.

JUSTIFICATION:

In 1997 the Staten island Expressway was ceremoniously named the
MIA-POW Memorial Highway in honor of those who served our country,
many of whom never came home. This bill would make this name official
to pay tribute to those men and women who, in service to their country
during times of conflict, were Prisoners of War or listed as Missing
in Action.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:

New bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:

Undetermined.

EFFECTIVE DATE:

This act shall take effect immediately.
