Oklahoma Names Stretch of Highway After Trump

Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt has announced Senate Bill 624, which names a stretch of highway after former President Donald Trump.

Per ABC “According to the bill, a section of State Highway 287 that begins in Boise City, will extend 20 miles and end on the southeast Oklahoma-Texas border. Oklahoma’s Department of Transportation is working to find signs to be placed, marking the highway honoring the Nation’s 45th President.”

Newsmax reported “The Oklahoma Legislature’s Senate Minority Leader Kay Floyd briefly put a spoke in the wheel of the legislation when she pointed out that state law says a person must be dead for at least three years before a highway or bridge can be named in their honor, with the only exception being Medal of Honor recipients.

“However, Republicans solved that problem by passing an amendment to the law that eliminated the three-year requirement,” they added.
