Oklahoma lawmakers file bill to create Donald Trump highway

(AP) Two Republican state senators have written a bill to rename a portion of the world-renowned Route 66 highway in northeastern Oklahoma the President Donald J. Trump Highway.

Sens. Nathan Dahm, of Broken Arrow, and Marty Quinn, of Claremore, announced Tuesday their plans to introduce the bill.

The bill would rename a roughly 13-mile stretch of Route 66 from Miami, extending north and east through Commerce to Industrial Parkway in Ottawa County.

The lawmakers say the bill will direct that no taxpayer money be used to pay for signage. Instead, they say the Senate and House authors and co-authors will be required to provide the money needed for the cost of the signs.
