Oklahoma Republican Gov. Kevin Stitt signed a bill on Friday that will rename a highway for former President Donald Trump.
The location will include a 20-mile stretch of highway and bridge from Boise City to the state’s border with Texas, according to the Washington Examiner.
To remove controversy, the “The new measure calls for signs to be put up along the highway, which is to be paid for by the authors of the bill,” according to KVOA-TV.
The bill officially allows the state to “designate a section of State Highway 287 as ‘President Donald J. Trump Highway,'” according to the report.
The state has taken a different approach from Democrats in New York. According to MSN News, local Democrats want to remove Trump’s name from a local park.
“Our parklands should be reflective of New Yorkers that we can be proud of, New Yorkers that have expressed our values,” Assemblywoman Nily Rozic, a Democratic sponsor of the bill, of the plan.
“There are a lot of other New Yorkers who are worthy of the honor of having a park named after themselves.”
Trump remains controversial even after his departure from the Oval Office. The latest move by Oklahoma offers a sign of honor to a president who has endured much criticism during his time leading the nation.
