Poll:
Should the "Mark McGwire Highway" sign be removed from I-70?

(KMOV)-- The lawmaker who pushed to rename part of I-70 "Mark McGwire Highway" now wants McGwire's name taken away.

State Sen.Ryan McKenna said it's not appropriate to honor McGwire because he admitted to using steroids.
           
The measure is attached to a broader bill that has already received approval from the transportation committee.
           
A 5-mile stretch of I-70 was named "The Mark McGwire Highway" after McGwire hit 70 homeruns in 1998.
