Lawmakers Want To Rename Highway For Tim Russert

by on June 17, 2008

Newsday has the story:

Federal lawmakers from New York say they want to rename a portion of U.S. Route 20 near Ralph Wilson Stadium in Orchard Park after the late Tim Russert.

Sens. Charles Schumer, Hillary Clinton and Rep. Brian Higgins say they’ll introduce a resolution regarding the highway’s name on Monday.

Under their proposal, a section of the highway that runs in front of the stadium _ home to Russert’s beloved Buffalo Bills _ would bear the late newsman’s name. They didn’t specify exactly what the new name would be or how long a stretch of the highway would be renamed.

Not a bad idea, but I also like Buffalo Pundit’s idea of renaming Buffalo Niagara International Airport to Tim Russert International Airport.
