BOSTON – Senator Michael O. Moore (D-Millbury) and Representative David K. Muradian, Jr. (R-Grafton) filed legislation that would dedicate a bridge in the Town of Grafton as the ‘Veterans Memorial Bridge’ in honor of all who have served the Country.

“There is no greater honor than to introduce legislation that recognizes the service and sacrifice of our veterans and their families,” said Senator Moore. “This legislation reaffirms our deep appreciation to those who have served and celebrates veterans’ contributions to promote freedom on the home-front and abroad. I look forward to working alongside Representative Muradian and my colleagues to advance this bill to the Governor’s desk.”

“It is important to honor and recognize the contributions our veterans have made throughout the decades,” said Representative Muradian. “This dedication not only reaffirms the strong commitment we have to our veterans, but also acknowledges the unwavering sacrifices that veterans and their families have made for the betterment of our community and our country.”

The bill, currently listed as House Docket 4055, would officially dedicate the state-owned bridge on Route 122A which crosses over the Blackstone River near Mill Villages Park in Grafton. Visit the Legislature’s website, www.malegislature.gov, to view and track the bill.
