PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL:

This bill would change the official name of the Staten Island Expressway to the POW-MIA Highway.

JUSTIFICATION:

In 1997 the Staten island Expressway was ceremoniously named the MIA-POW Memorial Highway in honor of those who served our country, many of whom never came home. This bill would make this name official to pay tribute to those men and women who, in service to their country during times of conflict, were Prisoners of War or listed as Missing in Action.

New bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:

Undetermined.

EFFECTIVE DATE:

This act shall take effect immediately.
