Should I-10 be renamed ‘Who Dat Nation Highway’ in Louisiana?
That's what Louisiana Stat Senator Wesley Bishop (D-New Orleans) is proposing.
State Sen. Wesley Bishop, D-New Orleans, has proposed renaming Interstate 10 in Louisiana “Who Dat Nation Highway” in honor of Saints fans. But there’s a catch: the state won’t pay for any new signage.
From the Texas State Line east to the Mississippi border, Senate Bill 134 authorizes the Department of Transportation and Development to “erect and maintain appropriate signs” that designate I-10 by its new name. For such signs to go up, “local or private monies” have to be provided to the DOTD equal to the costs for “material, fabrication, mounting posts, and installation of each sign.”
Also, the total cost per sign cannot exceed $1,100, according to Bishop’s bill.
The Louisiana Legislature convenes Monday (April 8) for its 2019 session.
Not the worst idea a Democrat ever came up with, as long as it doesn't cost too much.
