A lawmaker representing Cold Spring wants to name a highway in memory of fallen officer Tom Decker.

Representative Jeff Howe says he’ll propose renaming a stretch of Highway 23 between Richmond and Cold Spring for Decker.

Howe told the St. Cloud Times that he expects Sen. Michelle Fischbach will carry the measure to the Senate.

Decker was shot and killed on Nov. 29. No one has been charged with his murder.
