Senator: Name Highway For Heisman Winner 4-12-2011

A Michigan senator is trying again to name a stretch of Michigan highway for Heisman Trophy winner Mark Ingram.
Democratic Sen. John Gleason of Flushing said Tuesday he doesn't want to name the highway for Ingram because of his success as an Alabama tailback, but for his educational achievements.
The Flint Southwestern Academy graduate will get his college degree a year early.
Gleason's bill would name a stretch of M-21 that runs through the middle of Flint the "Mark V. Ingram II Freeway."
A previous effort passed the Senate last November but failed to pass the House. This year's measure hasn't been voted on by either chamber.
Republican Sen. Mike Kowall of Oakland County's White Lake Township says Ingram's academic achievements should be celebrated with the highway naming.
