New York Loves Lucy.

New York State Senator Catherine Young, of Western NY, has introduced two bills for the upcoming legislative session that pay homage to comedian and actress Lucille Ball.
Young, who is based out of Olean, represents a district near the Lucille Ball-Desi Arnaz Center in Jamestown, NY.
One bill authorizes the DMV to create a distinct Lucille Ball license plate. The second bill designates the bridge on interstate route 86 over North Main Street in the town of Ellicott as the "Lucille Ball - Desi Arnaz Memorial Bridge."
In 2011, Lucille, who was born in Jamestown, would have turned 90.
Both bills have been introduced in previous sessions with the goal of promoting tourism.
