Treasure Island Bridge to Be Named After Bill Young?

The beach community of Treasure Island is getting a new $50 million causeway, scheduled to open August 25. Before the GOP lost power in the Congress, Rep. Bill Young managed to bring this particular piece of pork into the appropriations process on behalf of the wealthy enclave.

As a "thank you," City Manager Reid Silverboard has asked for a one-time waiver on the local restriction against naming streets and bridges after individuals in order to name the causeway after Young.
