TULSA, Okla. (KTUL) — The Oklahoma House passed a bill that would name a stretch of highway after former President Donald J. Trump.

Senate Bill 624 addresses memorial bridge and highway designations in Oklahoma.

The bill proposes to name the section of State Highway 287 beginning at the limits of Boise City extending southeast to the Oklahoma-Texas border in Cimarron County be designated as the “President Donald J. Trump Highway.”

It would direct the Department of Transportation to place permanent markers with the name on the highway.

The bill is now headed to the Senate.
