HB 4344 pictureSPRINGFIELD— Legislation allowing roads to be named after fallen soldiers from Illinois became law yesterday.

“We must never forget our service members who have given their lives so we can live peacefully,” said Bertino-Tarrant, who sponsored the new law in the Senate. “Having a road named in honor of a fallen soldier is one way we can show our appreciation for what they’ve done for us and ensure their heroic service is remembered.”

House Bill 4344 creates the Heroes Way Designation Program. The program will allow family members of fallen Illinois soldiers to apply and pay for an honorary road designation as a tribute to their deceased loved one.

 House Bill 4344 is effective Jan. 1, 2017.
