TROOPER MANUEL H. FIELDS MEMORIAL HIGHWAY

House Bill 4572 (proposed substitute H-1)

Sponsor:  Rep. Sarah L. Lightner

Committee:  Transportation

Complete to 6-10-19

SUMMARY:

House Bill 4572 would amend the Michigan Memorial Highway Act to designate the portion of highway I-94 in Jackson County between the US-127 South interchange and Hawkins Road as the “Trooper Manuel H. Fields Memorial Highway.”

Proposed MCL 250.2091

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.
