          ACR 53  
          (Dahle) - As Introduced April 6, 2015


          SUBJECT:  Richard "Dick" Dickerson Memorial Highway


          SUMMARY:  Designates a specific portion of State 44 in the City  
          of Redding the "Richard 'Dick' Dickerson Memorial Highway."   
          Specifically, this resolution: 


          1)Recounts the lifetime accomplishments of Richard "Dick"  
            Dickerson, a 30-year law enforcement officer and a member of  
            the California State Assembly and the Redding City Council.  

          2)Designates a specific portion of State 44, between Airport  
            Road and  East Street, in the City of Redding as the "Richard  
            'Dick' Dickerson Memorial Highway."  

          3)Requests that the California Department of Transportation  
            (Caltrans) determine the cost of appropriate signs, consistent  
            with the signing requirements for the state highway system,  
            showing the special designation and, upon receiving donations  
            from non-state sources covering that cost, to erect those  
            signs.  

          EXISTING LAW:  Assigns Caltrans the responsibility of operating  
          and maintaining state highways.  This includes the installation  
          and maintenance of highway signs.

          FISCAL EFFECT:  Unknown, but the measure requests that Caltrans

          non-state sources covering the cost.


          COMMENTS:  Richard "Dick" Dickerson was a 30-year law
