JULIE PLAWECKI MEMORIAL HIGHWAY

House Bill 4261 as introduced

Sponsor:  Rep. Jewell Jones

Committee:  Transportation

Complete to 6-14-19

SUMMARY:

House Bill 4261 would amend the Michigan Memorial Highway Act to designate the portion of highway US-24 in Wayne County beginning at the intersection with M-153 and extending north to the intersection with Warren Avenue as the “Julie Plawecki Memorial Highway.” (Highway US-24 in Wayne County is currently designated the “10th Mountain Division Memorial Highway.” The bill would exclude the portion of US-24 between         M-153 and Warren Avenue from this designation.)

The bill would take effect 90 days after being enacted into law.

MCL 250.1092 and proposed MCL 250. 1092a

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.
