          SUBJECT:  CHP Officer Keith M. Giles Memorial Interchange


            DIGEST:  This resolution designates the interchange at State  
          Routes 43 and 198 in the County of Kings as the CHP Officer  
          Keith M. Giles Memorial Interchange.

          ANALYSIS:
          
          Existing law:
          
          The committee has adopted a policy regarding the naming of state  
          highways or structures.  Under the policy, the committee will  
          consider only those resolutions that meet all of the following  
          criteria:

          1)The person being honored must have provided extraordinary  
            public service or some exemplary contribution to the public  
            good and have a connection to the community where the highway  
            or structure is located.

          2)The person being honored must be deceased.

          3)The naming must be done without cost to the state.  Costs for  
            signs and plaques must be paid by local or private sources.

          4)The author or co-author of the resolution must represent the  
            district in which the facility is located, and the resolution  
            must identify the specific highway segment or structure being  
            named.

          5)The segment of highway being named must not exceed five miles  
            in length.   

          6)The proposed designation must reflect a community consensus  
            and be without local opposition.  

          7)The proposed designation may not supersede an existing  
            designation unless the sponsor can document that a good faith  
            effort has uncovered no opposition to rescinding the prior  
            designation.

            This resolution designates the interchange at State Routes 43  
          and 198 in the County of Kings as the CHP Officer Keith M. Giles  
          Memorial Interchange.  It also requests that the Department of  
          Transportation determine the cost of appropriate signage and,  
          upon receipt of donations from non-state sources covering that  
          cost, to erect those signs.

          COMMENTS:

          1)Purpose.  This resolution is intended to honor the life and  
            service of Keith M. Giles.

          2)Background.  Keith Melvin Giles was born on July 21, 1940 in  
            Tulare, California.  He graduated from Corcoran High School  
            and the College of the Sequoias.  Mr. Giles served in the  
            United States Army, achieving the rank of corporal.  Mr. Giles  
            graduated from the California Highway Patrol Academy on May  
            28, 1970.  Upon graduation, he was assigned to the Santa Fe  
            Springs Area.  On August 25, 1974, Officer Giles was killed in  
            the line of duty.  While making a traffic stop and standing  
            next to the stopped vehicle, another vehicle drifted over the  
            edge of the roadway, striking and killing Officer Giles.   
            Officer Giles is survived by his wife and three children.
