On July 31, the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee passed, by voice vote, a bill (H.R. 4131) to designate a section of California State Route 91 as the Juanita Millender-McDonald Highway.
Sponsored by Rep. Laura Richardson (D-CA), the bill contains several findings, including:
Rep. John Duncan (R-TN) said, “I’m honored to support H.R. 4131…This is a very fitting tribute to our former colleague. Congresswoman Juanita Millender-McDonald was a member of this committee for over ten years, beginning when she was elected to Congress in April 1996…She was always very attractive, very dignified, and was a real lady, both personally and professionally. She was a tireless advocate for transportation issues impacting her district…I urge all of our colleagues to support this bill honoring our friend Juanita Millender-McDonald.”
