COLUMBUS - 

State Representative Robert Sprague (R-Findlay) gave testimony this week on legislation that will name a portion of road in Hancock County after late Congressman Mike Oxley. House Bill 430 was heard in the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee.


The bill will designate a section of U.S. Route 30 in Hancock County as the “Congressman Michael G. Oxley Memorial Highway.” Mike Oxley, a former Congressman from Findlay, Ohio, passed away on January 1st of this year. Oxley represented Ohio’s 4th congressional district from 1981 until 2007. He was also a member of the Ohio House of Representatives from 1973 until 1981.


“It is an honor to sponsor and give testimony on this legislation,” said Representative Sprague. “Congressman Oxley was a loyal and dedicated public servant, and I know he served his constituents well. I am hopeful that by naming a portion of Route 30 after him, all who pass by will be reminded of the great work he did for our state and nation.”


House Bill 430 now awaits a vote from the committee.
