Dayton is scheduled to put his pen to the bill in a Tuesday afternoon ceremony. His office says members of the Decker family and local elected officials will participate in the ceremony.

The Legislature passed the bill unanimously last week. Decker was shot and killed on a call in downtown Cold Spring last November.

The bill renames Highway 23 for Decker between Cold Spring and Richmond. Signs will mark that stretch of road as "Tom Decker Memorial Highway."
