Ronald Reagan comes back to haunt the House
HB 210, which was placed on today's Local and Consent Calendar, just passed to 3rd reading. The bill would rename I-20 from Dallas to the Louisiana border the Ronald Reagan Memorial Highway. Currently, the only part of I-20 with the name is within the Metroplex.
I posted something on this last session, and I'll keep the rant short: let locals do it, not lawmakers hundreds of miles away. If Texans really want to rename an interstate after a partisan lawmaker from another state, then so be it. But lawmakers operating on their own agenda are the driving force behind this. It's just a waste of money putting up new signs, not to mention bad politics.
