SERGEANT WOUTERS MEMORIAL HIGHWAY

House Bill 6147 as introduced

Sponsor:  Rep. Patrick Green

Committee:  Transportation and Infrastructure

Complete to 11-19-18

SUMMARY:

House Bill 6147 would amend the Michigan Memorial Highway Act to designate the portion of highway M-53 in Macomb County that begins at its intersection with 14 Mile Road and extends south to its intersection with 8 Mile Road as the “Sergeant Wouters Memorial Highway.”

The bill would take effect 90 days after its enactment.

Proposed MCL 250.1030a

FISCAL IMPACT:

Section 2 of the Michigan Memorial Highway Act indicates that the state transportation department shall provide for the erection of suitable markers indicating the name of the highway only “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.
