COLUMBUS – The Ohio House of Representatives today unanimously passed House Bill 75, legislation to designate a portion of State Route 72 in Greene County as the Caitlin Renee Preston Memorial Highway. The bill is joint sponsored by State Reps. Brian Lampton (R-Beavercreek) and Bill Dean (R-Xenia).

This bill honors the legacy of Caitlin Renee Preston, who tragically passed away in May of 2019 due to a car accident.

“I would like to extend my deepest condolences to the Preston family for the unimaginable pain that you have had to live with,” said Lampton during House Session. “I hope this bill brings some comfort knowing that she will never be forgotten.”

“Caitlin left a tremendous legacy during her time on this side of heaven, and it is our duty to keep her memory alive for many years to come,” said Dean. “This highway is more than just a stretch of road – it is an enduring reminder of Caitlin’s brief but impactful life in western Ohio.”

The legislation now moves to the Ohio Senate for consideration.
