AN ACT to amend the highway law, in relation to designating a portion of
  the state highway system in the city of New York and the  counties  of
  Nassau and Suffolk as the "Theodore 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-z to  read
as follows:
  S  343-Z.  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  TO  THE
NORTHERN  STATE  PARKWAY AND CONTINUING ALONG THE NORTHERN STATE PARKWAY
THROUGH THE COUNTIES OF NASSAU AND SUFFOLK TO THE TERMINUS OF THE NORTH-
ERN STATE PARKWAY IN THE UNINCORPORATED COMMUNITY OF  HAUPPAUGE  IN  THE
TOWNS OF ISLIP AND SMITHTOWN, COUNTY OF SUFFOLK, SHALL BE DESIGNATED AND
KNOWN AS THE "THEODORE ROOSEVELT MEMORIAL PARKWAY".
  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.
