A proposal to name part of a highway in St. Joseph after late television news icon Walter Cronkite is expected to go before a joint transportation committee in the Missouri Legislature this week.
The effort is being promoted by Missouri Western State University, where a display tracing the journalist's life and career opened in November. Cronkite was a St. Joseph native.
The St. Joseph News-Press reports that an application will be presented Tuesday at a hearing of the Missouri General Assembly's Joint Committee on Transportation Oversight.
That panel will decide on the issue, rather than a vote of all state lawmakers.
