CORPSMAN AARON D. ULLOM
MEMORIAL BRIDGE IN MIDLAND
Senate Bill 513 (as passed by the Senate)
Sponsor: Sen. Jim Stamas
House Committee: Transportation
Senate Committee: Transportation (Enacted as Public Act 21 of 2016)
Complete to 1-25-16
The bill would amend the Michigan Memorial Highway Act to name the bridge on highway US-10 over Eastman Avenue in the City of Midland as the "Corpsman Aaron D. Ullom Memorial Bridge."
According to information from the Senate Fiscal Agency, Aaron D. Ullom was a 2009 graduate of Midland High School killed by enemy fire in Afghanistan in July 2011 while serving as a Navy hospital corpsman and attending a wounded marine.
Proposed MCL 250.1003a
Section 2 of the Michigan Memorial Highway Act indicates that the State Transportation Department shall only provide for the erection of suitable markers indicating the name of the highway "when sufficient private contributions are received to completely cover the cost of erecting and maintaining those markers." As a result, the bill has no state or local fiscal impact.
