From the Author's Statement of Intent:
"Interested observers note that with the tragic loss of Army Ranger Sergeant Tanner Stone
Higgins in military operations in a foreign theater, Texas has lost another brave son. These
observers call for the distinguished service of Sergeant Higgins to be recognized with a tribute as
special as the selfless soldier himself. H.B. 2265 seeks to honor the memory of Sergeant Higgins.
H.B. 2265 amends the Transportation Code to designate the portion of State Highway 154 from
the municipal limits of Yantis in Wood County north to the municipal limits of Sulphur Springs
in Hopkins County as the Sgt. Tanner Stone Higgins Memorial Highway. The bill requires the
Texas Department of Transportation, subject to a grant or donation of funds, to design and
construct markers indicating the designation as the Sgt. Tanner Stone Higgins Memorial
Highway and any other appropriate information and to erect a marker at each end of the highway
and at appropriate intermediate sites along the highway.
H.B. 2265 amends current law relating to the designation of a portion of State Highway 154 in
Wood and Hopkins Counties as the Sgt. Tanner Stone Higgins Memorial Highway."
We remain neutral on all legislation relating to honorariums, memorials, specialty license plates, and road or bridge naming.
The second chamber sponsor is Senator Hall.
