Bill To Name Highway After Convicted Murderer of DPS Trooper

Rep. Phil Stephenson wanted to name a stretch of freeway in Jackson County, near Houston, after Bill Davidson, a state trooper who was killed on duty in 1992. Instead, he filed a bill that would have created the Ronald Ray Howard Memorial Highway. Howard was sentenced to death for shooting Davidson in the neck, and he died by lethal injection in 2005.

He tried to correct it by filing a new bill, but he screwed up the name again.
