Former President Trump just got some great news from the state of Oklahoma.
“Gov. Kevin Stitt on Friday signed legislation that will name a stretch of highway in the panhandle after the former president,” according to The Oklahoman.
GOP legislators penned “the Trump highway proposal into the Oklahoma Legislature’s annual omnibus bridge-and-highway-naming bill, which is typically uncontroversial,” according to the report. “Also included in the bill is language to name a highway interchange in Midwest City after U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe.”
As reported by the paper, “President Donald J. Trump Highway will be a roughly 20-mile stretch of U.S. 287 from Boise City to the Oklahoma-Texas border in Cimarron County.”
Some legislators wanted to name a highway after former president Trump. But statute dictated that a person must’ve passed away before a road is named for them. So what did we do? We just repealed that statute! Amazing what this body can accomplish when we really want something.
