This measure would designate a portion of State Route 99 from just past the junction with State Route 70 to the undercrossing at the Garden Highway near the town of Nicolaus in the County of Sutter as the “Farm-to-Fork Corridor.” The measure would request the Department of Transportation to determine the cost of appropriate signs showing this special designation and, upon receiving donations from nonstate sources covering that cost, to erect those signs.

WHEREAS, Farmers in these counties continue to provide quality agricultural commodities and produce to Sacramento and the greater United States; and
WHEREAS, The City of Sacramento is known as “America’s Farm-to-Fork Capital”; and
WHEREAS, High-quality agricultural commodities and produce are frequently transported to the City of Sacramento and the greater United States via State Route 99; now, therefore, be it
