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

          The Senate amendments make a minor, technical amendment to the  
          description of the highway segment being named.

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

          AS PASSED BY THE ASSEMBLY, this resolution:


                                                                     ACR 53

                                                                    Page  2

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

          3)Requested 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  

          FISCAL EFFECT:  According to the Senate Appropriations  
          Committee, pursuant to Senate Rule 28.8, negligible state costs.

          COMMENTS:  Richard "Dick" Dickerson was a 30-year law  
          enforcement officer before serving in the California State  
          Assembly between 1998 and 2002, representing the 2nd Assembly  
          District.  While in the Assembly, Mr. Dickerson championed  
          issues in public safety, water, agriculture, and natural  
          resources.  Subsequent to his time in the Assembly, Mr.  
          Dickerson served on the Redding City Council and twice served as  
          mayor of the City of Redding.  Mr. Dickerson passed away in  
          September 2014 and is survived by his wife of 33 years and his  
          four children and eight grandchildren.
