1An Act to create

2STH 128 as the 128th Infantry Memorial Highway.
Analysis by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Under current law, certain highway routes and bridges have been designated
and marked to memorialize, commemorate, or recognize certain individuals, groups,
or events. This bill directs the Department of Transportation to designate and, upon
receipt of sufficient contributions from interested parties, mark the route of STH 128
in Pierce and St. Croix counties as the "128th Infantry Memorial Highway" to honor
the members of the 128th Battalion of the 32nd Infantry Brigade for bravery,
sacrifice, and devotion in their service in Iraq as well as World Wars I and II. No state
funds, other than from contributions from interested parties, may be used for the
erection or maintenance of any markers to identify the highway as the "128th
Infantry Memorial Highway."
For further information see the state fiscal estimate, which will be printed as
an appendix to this bill.
