LANSING, Mich. — Sen. Jim Stamas, R-Midland; Rep. Sue Allor, R-Wolverine; and Karen Pettalia on Tuesday spoke before the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee in support of Stamas’ legislation to permanently honor Pettalia’s late husband, former Rep. Peter Pettalia, who died in 2016 in an accident while traveling down to the Capitol for session.

Senate Bill 622 would designate the portion of U.S. 23 in Presque Isle County between Maple Drive and Misiak Highway as the “Peter A. Pettalia Memorial Highway.” Rep. Pettalia served three terms in the Michigan House of Representatives from 2011 until his untimely death in September 2016. Allor has introduced similar legislation in the House.
