Taylorville Republican Rodney Davis was pleased that his bill, H.R. 66, the Route 66 Centennial Commission Act, was passed out of the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee last week.
 
Rep. Davis says the historic road deserves to be recognized and have its history celebrated.
 

 

 
The bill created a 19 member Commission to recommend activities to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Route 66 in 2026, directs the Commission to host a conference on the U.S. Numbered Highway System, marking it's 100 year anniversary, and directs the Department of Transportation, in consultation with the governors of eight states through which 66 passes, to develop a plan on the preservation needs of Route 66.
