HOUSE CONCURRENT
RESOLUTION



        A CONCURRENT RESOLUTION urging the Indiana department of transportation to designate old U.S. 27 as a national historical road.

    Whereas, Old U.S. 27 has contributed a significant economic and social benefit to the state of Indiana by serving as a major north to south artery for commerce from northern Michigan to southern Florida, including a 175 mile stretch along Indiana's eastern border;

    Whereas, These economic and social benefits contributed to the growth and prosperity of the state of Indiana;

    Whereas, The designation of old U.S. 27 as a national historic road would increase tourism and lead to increased economic development; and

    Whereas, There is a great need to preserve and promote old U.S. 27 due to the important role it has played in our heritage: Therefore,

Be it resolved by the House of Representatives

of the General Assembly of the State of Indiana,

the Senate concurring:


    SECTION 1. That the Indiana General Assembly supports the effort to designate old U.S. 27 as a historical road that will promote tourism and economic development opportunities in Indiana.
    SECTION 2. That the Principal Clerk of the House of Representatives transmit a copy of this resolution to the commissioner of the Indiana department of transportation.
