Measure creates Rush Limbaugh Way

Beginning July 1, a stretch of U.S. 41 and State Road 50 in Hernando County will be called Rush Limbaugh Way. The name change was part of a larger transportation bill signed into law by Gov. Ron DeSantis on May 31. Introduced into the Florida House by Rep. Tyler Sirois (R-Merritt Island), HB 21 was originally intended to rename a Brevard County bridge in honor of Astronaut Sally Ride. The final version of the bill renamed bridges and roads after 22 people, including conservative radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh.

Sen. Blaise Ingoglia (R-Spring Hill), who sponsored the legislation in the Florida Senate, said Limbaugh inspired his listeners to become involved in politics. “His passing left a void in the conservative talk radio space that will never be filled. This road designation will remind people of his passion and love of country,” he said.

Limbaugh’s radio show was heard locally on WWJB. The legislation passed the Florida Senate by a vote of 38-2. It passed the House by an 87-25 margin.
