Senate of Pennsylvania
Session of 2015 - 2016 Regular Session


Posted: February 1, 2016 02:40 PM
From: Senator Scott E. Hutchinson
To: All Senate members
Subject: Posthumous Road and Bridge Naming
In the near future, I plan on introducing legislation that would clarify the requirements for naming designation.

I believe that having a piece of public infrastructure named after someone is a great honor and should be done for those who are outstanding citizens of the Commonwealth. Though rare, there have been instances where someone who has received recognition through a name designation has gone on to commit a felony or other violent crimes.

This legislation would require that in order for someone to be an eligible candidate for name designation they must be deceased. This would allow individuals’ records of service or contribution to be fully vetted and would preserve the honor and integrity of these naming designations.

If you have any questions regarding this legislation, please contact Nathan Akers in my office at
787-9684 or nakers@pasen.gov.

Introduced as SB1132
