Former President Donald Trump has had buildings, casinos, golf courses, an airline and steaks named after him. Now a Wyoming lawmaker proposes to name a highway after the 45th president.
Republican State Representative Chuck Gray of Casper is sponsoring the bill to rename Wyoming Highway 258 as the President Donald J. Trump Highway.
The 10.6-mile stretch of road that bypasses the city of Casper is also known as Wyoming Boulevard. Nearly 70% of Wyoming voters chose Trump in 2020.
The Wyoming Legislature’s budget session starts on Monday, but because the highway renaming bill is not a budget bill, it must receive a two-thirds vote of all lawmakers to be considered.
