We could see some new road names and license plates in Missouri. The House Transportation this week considers four measures that authorize a Navy Cross special license plate, a “Don’t Tread On Me” license plate and would rename two stretches of highway.
Representative Tony Dugger has a bill that would designate a portion of Highway 5 between Ava and Mansfield as the “Missouri Fox Trotting Highway.” Representative Lyle Roland has introduced a measure that would designate a portion of U.S. Highway 160 in Gainesville as the “Matthew J. England Memorial Highway.”
England was a resident of Gainesville. He was killed in Iraq in 2011. He was 22.
