BILL NUMBER:S6594

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the highway law, in relation to
designating a portion of the state highway system in Greene county as
the "Honorable Donald Olson Memorial Highway"

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: This bill relates to designating a
portion of State Route 23 as the "Honorable Donald Olson Memorial
Highway".

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:

Section 1 amends the Highway Law by adding a new Section 344-bb so
that an approximate 2.5 mile portion of the state highway system,
constituting State Route 23, between Old Road and Brooksburgh Road
(County Route 65) in Greene County, shall be designated and known as
the "Honorable Donald Olson Memorial Highway".

Section II of the bill states the Commissioner of Transportation shall
provide for the installation and maintenance of adequate signing of
the state highway system. The designation of this highway shall be one
of ceremonial nature and the official name of such highway shall not
be changed as a result of this act.

JUSTIFICATION: Mr. Donald Olson died tragically in an automobile
accident in the Town of Windham on Thursday, May 9, 2013. He was a
retired clerk of the Greene County Legislature, longtime Prattsville
Town Justice and a former volunteer firefighter with Prattsville Hose
Company for over 25 years. At the time of his death, Mr. Olson was the
hose company's chairman and commissioner.

A portion of the state highway system, which is to be designated and
known as the "Honorable Donald Olson Memorial Highway", will serve as
a reminder to us all of the dedication, selflessness and honor which
Mr. Olson showed throughout his tenure in public service and all of
his civic endeavors.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS FOR STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENTS: This legislation
would effectively have no fiscal impact on state and local
governments. The New York State Department of Transportation would be
required to develop modest signage to mark the designated section of
NYS Route 23.

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act would take effect immediately.
