Bush Signs Russert Highway Bill
President Bush has signed a bill into law, designating the stretch of US Route 20A outside Ralph Wilson Stadium in honor of the late Tim Russert. Russert died June 13 at 58 of a heart attack while working at NBC News. During football season, he ended his Sunday broadcast of "Meet the Press," with the signoff "Go Bills." The measure to honor him and his connection to the Bills was passed unanimously by the House of Representatives and the Senate. The stretch of Route 20A between Abbott Road and California Road in Orchard Park is now the "Timothy J. Russert Highway."
