Memo

BILL NUMBER:S3781A               REVISED 5/2/13

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the highway law, in relation to the designation of the "Saratoga County Veterans' Memorial Highway"

PURPOSE: To designate a portion of the state highway system as the "Saratoga County Veterans' Memorial Highway". That portion of State Highway Route 4 in the Village of Schuylerville (Town of Saratoga), commencing at its intersection with Spring Street, south on Route 4, past the Saratoga National Cemetery and the Saratoga Battlefield through the Town of Stillwater into the City of Mechanicville and then continuing south into the Town of Waterford and ending at the Saratoga County line in Waterford on Route 4 shall be designated as the "Saratoga County Veterans' Memorial Highway".

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Section one - amends the highway law by adding a new section 342-iii which designates a portion of the state highway system as the "Saratoga County Veterans' Memorial Highway". That portion of state highway Route 4 in the Village of Schuylerville (Town of Saratoga), commencing at its intersection with Spring Street, south on Route 4, past the Saratoga National Cemetery and the Saratoga Battlefield through the Town of Stillwater into the City of Mechanicville and then continuing south into the Town of Waterford and ending at the Saratoga County line in Waterford on Route 4 shall be designated as the "Saratoga County Veterans' Memorial Highway".

Section two - calls for the Commissioner of Transportation to provide for the installation and maintenance of adequate signing of the state highway system as designated pursuant to section one of this act.

Section three - Effective date.

JUSTIFICATION: Various local V.F.W. Posts and American Legion posts have sent letters of support for the designation of the Saratoga County Veterans' Memorial Highway. The Saratoga County Board of Supervisors Veterans' Committee passed a resolution for this designation. This bill would increase the visibility of the historic corridor in Saratoga County which was the location of the Battle of Saratoga, Turning Point of the Revolutionary War. It would also benefit the Saratoga National Cemetery and the New York State Military Museum.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: S2160-B (2012)

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None to the State.

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.
