Pence Announces Naming of I-69 Extension to Honor Scalia

Governor Mike Pence announced late Thursday that he would be signing an executive order naming the soon-to-be-built I-69 extension from Bloomington to Indianapolis after Antonin Scalia.

“In Indiana, we believe in defending the words of the Constitution. We believe the words that James Madison used are sacred, and few Supreme Court Justices have defended what the Founders intended like Antonin Scalia,” said Pence, nodding his head to add emphasis. “The Antonin Scalia Expressway will serve as a lasting tribute to this great American who heroically defended the Constitution against judicial activism from his spot on the Supreme Court bench,” Pence added.

Pence said other great Hoosiers were considered for the honor. The shortlist included author Kurt Vonnegut, basketball coach John Wooden, singer John Mellencamp, journalist Jane Pauley, songwriter Cole Porter, and Three’s Company star Joyce DeWitt.

At the same news conference, Mike Pence announced that today would be April Fools Day so be careful believing what you read on the internet. Sophomoric bloggers will write things that seem somewhat believable, but are easily proven untrue with a Google search.
