BILL NUMBER:S6841A

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the highway law, in relation to
designating certain portions of the state highway system in the
counties of Monroe and Tioga

PURPOSE: This bill will help honor police officers killed in the line
of duty by allowing for roadside memorial signs to be installed on
state highways.

SUMMARY PROVISIONS:

Section 1 amends the highway law by adding a new section 344-c

JUSTIFICATION: In many areas throughout the country, memorial signs
are dedicated to honor fallen officers and their families at the
location where they died. The state Department of Transportation has
traditionally restricted signage on state roads to notices for drivers
and other personnel such as law enforcement and snowplow drivers. This
bill would change this tradition and would allow New York to begin to
memorialize our fallen officers with signage on certain portions of
state highways. Specifically, this bill would memorialize the
following fallen officers: Deputy Simon J. Bermingham; Deputy Joseph
G. Munz; Deputy William Marshall; Deputy James I. Conheady; Deputy
John Pullano; Undersheriff George A. Conway; Deputy Frank Dombrowski;
and Sergeant Robert Skeleton, Jr.

Providing highway memorial signage is a small, overdue way that New
York State can honor its police officers killed in the line of duty.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: To be determined

EFFECTIVE DATE: Immediately.
