Memo

BILL NUMBER:S2037

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the highway law, in relation to designating a portion of the state highway system in the city of New York as the "Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Parkway"

PURPOSE: To honor Theodore Roosevelt, our 26th president.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Amends the Highway Law to add a new section designating the Grand Central Parkway the Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Parkway,

JUSTIFICATION: Theodore Roosevelt was a native New Yorker who achieved greatness in multiple endeavors. His indomitable spirit led a frail young boy to lead a famous charge up San Juan Hill, be roughneck cowboy in an untamed west and then the New York City Police Commissioner, Assemblyman, Vice President and the 20h President. During his life, he opened our national parks, built the Panama Canal, led the United States onto the world stage when he sent the "Great White fleet" around the world. He took on the trusts and won antitrust legislation, expanded our national park system and won a Nobel Prize for mediating the Russo-Japanese War. He was truly the quintessential American looked up to by those generations that followed him. This legislation would honor the memory of one of our most distinguished New Yorkers by designating the Grand Central Parkway as the Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Parkway.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: 2012 S.7222.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: To be determined.

EFFECTIVE DATE: Immediately,
