From The Gateway Pundit:

Maryland state senators have introduced a bill to rename “Indian Head Highway” to “President Barack Obama Highway.”

The bill to change the name was introduced by Democratic state Senators Arthur Ellis and Obie Patterson.

The highway is currently named after a Maryland town that it runs along. Ellis is also pushing for the town to change their name.

The Hill reports that Ellis claims that the name “may be deemed offensive to indigenous persons,” and urged the town to be renamed to “better reflect the State of Maryland’s respect of indigenous history, culture, and persons.” That effort is up for consideration later this month.

The highway, also known as Maryland Rt. 210, runs through parts of Maryland and Washington, D.C. According to reports, it would cost taxpayers $12,500 to cover the costs for design, construction and installation of new signs.

If the bill passes, the name change will go into effect in October.
