First, in Illinois, the Chicago Sun Times is reporting that the state legislature is all in as far as naming an expressway for the 44th president.
It reads a tad convoluted, but state Rep. Robert Martwick (D-Chicago), submitted House Joint Resolution 0017. The measure would designate “the entirety of Interstate 294 of the Dwight D. Eisenhower System of Interstate and Defense Highways as the ‘President Barack Obama Tollway,’” state legislative records show.
The move is in “recognition of President Barack Obama’s dedication to public service as an Illinois State Senator, U.S. Senator from Illinois, and President of the United States of America,” the resolution read.
