The bill passed the House of Representatives by a vote of 139 Yeas and 0 Nays on April 26, 2019.

Mitchell Memorial Highway. The bill requires the Texas Department of Transportation, subject to a grant or donation of funds, to design and construct markers indicating the designation as the George P. Mitchell Memorial Highway and any other appropriate information and to erect a marker at each end of the highway and at appropriate intermediate sites along the highway.
