Remembering Isaac Hayes
On Thursday the state Senate unanimously passed a measure to designate a portion of Interstate 40 the "Isaac Hayes Memorial Highway" after the state House approved it in April.
The proposed stretch of highway is near Memphis, where Hayes was living at the time of his death. He was raised north of the city in Tipton County.
Tennessee Gov. Phil Bredesen is not expected to oppose the bill.
