S. RES. 288

Expressing the sense of the Senate that New Hampshire residents Ken Curran and George McAvoy be honored for their initiative on behalf of the taxpayer and the environment in the construction of the Moore Reservoir Causeway in Littleton, New Hampshire.

IN THE SENATE OF THE UNITED STATES

June 19, 2002

Mr. SMITH of New Hampshire submitted the following resolution; which was referred to the Committee on Environment and Public Works


RESOLUTION

Expressing the sense of the Senate that New Hampshire residents Ken Curran and George McAvoy be honored for their initiative on behalf of the taxpayer and the environment in the construction of the Moore Reservoir Causeway in Littleton, New Hampshire.

Whereas Ken Curran and George McAvoy have given a lifetime of service to the town of Littleton and the State of New Hampshire through both private and public service;

Whereas Mr. Curran and Mr. McAvoy, as private citizens, suggested the construction of a causeway in lieu of a costly bridge over the Moore Reservoir;

Whereas Mr. Curran and Mr. McAvoy, on their own time and using their own money, defeated construction of an expensive and unnecessary Interstate Route 93 bridge at Pattenville Draw near Littleton, New Hampshire;

Whereas Mr. Curran went out of his way to hire an engineer, develop plans for a new Interstate Route 93 crossing, and submit those plans to the State highway division in an effort to build the causeway;

Whereas after years of debate, a causeway was finally selected with a winning bid of only $4,300,000, far less expensive than the original $20,000,000 to $25,000,000 estimate for a dual bridge;

Whereas the New Hampshire Division of Public Works and Highways estimates that, as a result of Mr. Curran’s and Mr. McAvoy’s efforts, the total final savings to taxpayers was more than $12,600,000; and

Whereas the great State of New Hampshire has recently designated the Interstate Route 93 causeway at Moore Dam in Littleton as the ‘Curran/McAvoy Causeway’: Now, therefore, be it

    Resolved, That

SECTION 1. COMMENDATION.

    The Senate commends Mr. Ken Curran and Mr. George McAvoy for their exemplary service on behalf of the taxpayers of New Hampshire and the United States in the construction of the Interstate Route 93 causeway at Moore Dam in Littleton, New Hampshire.

SEC. 2. TRANSMISSION OF RESOLUTION.

    The Secretary of the Senate shall transmit a copy of this resolution to Mr. Curran and Mr. McAvoy of Littleton, New Hampshire.
