Read the first time April 19, 2016.
To whom was referred a Concurrent Resolution (H. 5235) to request that the Department of Transportation name the bridge spanning the Enoree River along United States Highway 176 and South Carolina Highways 72 and 121, etc., respectfully
That they have duly and carefully considered the same and recommend that the same do pass:
JIMMY C. BALES for Committee.
TO REQUEST THAT THE DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION NAME THE BRIDGE SPANNING THE ENOREE RIVER ALONG UNITED STATES HIGHWAY 176 AND SOUTH CAROLINA HIGHWAYS 72 AND 121 IN NEWBERRY AND UNION COUNTIES THE "SENATOR MARVIN E. ABRAMS BRIDGE" IN MEMORY OF FORMER SOUTH CAROLINA STATE SENATOR MARVIN E. ABRAMS AND ERECT APPROPRIATE MARKERS OR SIGNS AT THE BRIDGE REFLECTING THIS DESIGNATION.
Whereas, Marvin E. Abrams was elected to the South Carolina Senate in 1936, and served with distinction for twenty years from 1937 to 1956; and
Whereas, before his election to the Senate, Marvin E. Abrams served as a member of the South Carolina House of Representatives from 1933 to 1936; and
Whereas, Senator Abrams served as a Trustee of Winthrop College and of the University of South Carolina in 1956. He served as a Board Member of the South Carolina Public Service Authority (Santee Cooper) from 1956 to 1963; and
Whereas, it would be fitting and proper to commemorate his legacy by naming the bridge at Whitmire that spans the Enoree River in his honor. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring:
That the members of the General Assembly request the Department of Transportation name the bridge spanning the Enoree River along United States Highway 176 and South Carolina Highways 72 and 121 in Newberry and Union counties the "Senator Marvin E. Abrams Bridge" in memory of former South Carolina State Senator Marvin E. Abrams and erect appropriate markers or signs at the bridge reflecting this designation.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to the Department of Transportation.
