Assemblyman Steve Hawley (R,C,I-Batavia) will be taking part in two ceremonial dedications of the Genesee/Orleans Veterans Memorial Highway on Thursday, May 22 and Friday, May 23. Hawley sponsored and passed legislation to designate this highway alongside State Senators George Maziarz (R,C,I-Newfane) and Michael Ranzenhofer (R,C,I-Amherst).

            “In memory of the soldiers who gave their lives to defend our freedoms, we are dedicating the Genesee/Orleans Veterans Memorial Highway. As we enter Memorial Day weekend, I hope that people will take time to reflect on the sacrifice of our fallen soldiers and commit their lives to the service of their neighbors. This is how we can truly honor their memory,” said Hawley.

            As the ranking member of the Assembly Veterans Affairs Committee, Hawley has long made it a top priority of his to advocate for veterans. Hawley, Maziarz, and Ranzenhofer all passed legislation that gives preference to service-disabled veteran-owned businesses in securing state contracts. Hawley also sponsors a yearly Patriot Trip,  bringing veterans to visit Washington, D.C and the monuments erected in honor of their service.
