Dallas: Loop 12

Postby itsjrd1964 » 20 Jan 2019 05:32

Proposed bill would rename Loop 12 for former Gov. Ann Richards

According to the bill's wording, the naming would be in addition to, not a replacement of, the names that Loop 12 already uses (Northwest Highway, Buckner Boulevard, Great Trinity Forest Way, Ledbetter Drive, and Walton Walker Boulevard), if the bill passes.

Prediction...Nobody's gonna ever call it Ann Richard's hwy. Also, Kinda disrespectful to General Walton Walker having his tribute being also given to someone else.

The bill is one of many being submitted by lawmakers as the Texas Legislature gets underway in Austin. There’s no guarantee the bill will even get a hearing in front of a committee, much less make it to the floor for a vote.

Not gonna happen. Just a meaningless gesture that he can point to when voters ask what he's done for them lately...
