Two West Michigan state Senators have sponsored legislation to rename I-96 within the Walker city limits the "Officer Trevor Slot Memorial Highway."
Senators Tonya Schuitmaker and Mark Jansen say they want permanent recognition for Officer Slot's commitment to public safety.
Officer Slot died in the line of duty on October 13, 2011. He was run over by armed bank robbers.
The bill, SB 673, was referred to the Senate Government Operations Committee for consideration.
