Relative to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Bridge.

[ Filed with Secretary of State  September 07, 2021. ]

LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


ACR 21, Megan Dahle. Vietnam Veterans Memorial Bridge.
This measure would designate the South Yuba River Bridge over State Highway Route 49 in the County of Nevada as the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Bridge. The measure would request the Department of Transportation to determine the cost for appropriate signs showing this special designation and, upon receiving donations from nonstate sources covering that cost, to erect those signs.
Fiscal Committee: YES  

WHEREAS, The men and women who served in the Vietnam War had the difficult task of defending America, which they met with courage and commitment; and
WHEREAS, The job of a soldier is as difficult and dangerous as it is important, as evidenced by the death of many service members who did not return home—many soldiers lost their lives in the line of duty; and
WHEREAS, Even today, decades after the end of the Vietnam War, soldiers are remembered by their fellow servicemen, surviving family, and loved ones who honor their memory regularly; and
WHEREAS, Vietnam veterans will be remembered as skillful, courageous, and compassionate soldiers who were willing to do whatever it took to help others; and
WHEREAS, It is appropriate to pause to honor United States Vietnam Veterans, who made the ultimate sacrifice while performing their duties and to pay tribute to them, by recalling their devotion, celebrating their lives, and honoring their service; now, therefore, be it
Resolved by the Assembly of the State of California, the Senate thereof concurring, That the Legislature hereby designates the South Yuba River Bridge over State Highway Route 49 (R21.857, South Yuba River Bridge No. 17-07) in the County of Nevada as the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Bridge; and be it further
Resolved, That the Department of Transportation is requested to determine the cost of erecting appropriate signs, consistent with the signing requirements for the state highway system, showing this special designation and, upon receiving donations from nonstate sources covering that cost, to erect those signs; and be it further
Resolved, That the Chief Clerk of the Assembly transmit copies of this resolution to the Director of Transportation and to the author for appropriate distribution.
