Others would love to see Trump's name while driving on the massive highway.
@AnthonySabatini That means I would get to drive on a road named for Reagan and Trump on a regular basis? Sounds great! 😀👍— Jeff Struss (@Jeff Struss)1611095542.0
The matter will be discussed at the state's upcoming legislative session, which lasts 60 days starting on March 2.
It is not yet known which state representatives are for or against the bill.
