US Congressman mounting campaign to change the name of Interstate 69

November 17, 2004

Only in America….

John Hostettler, the Congressman representing the 8th district of Indiana, has been convinced by local religious groups to introduce legislation in the House that would change the name of an Interstate 69 extension to a more moral sounding number.

There are plans to extend the interstate from Indianapolis through southwestern Indiana all the way through Texas into Mexico in the coming years. While most believe this highway will be good for the state?ɬ¢?¢‚Äö¬¨?¢‚Äû¬¢s economy, religious conservatives believe ?ɬ¢?¢‚Äö¬¨?Ö‚ÄúI-69?ɬ¢?¢‚Äö¬¨? sounds too risqu?É?í?Ǭ© and want to change the interstate?ɬ¢?¢‚Äö¬¨?¢‚Äû¬¢s number.
