It would require legislative action to change the number of CA 9.  But it would also require legislative action to change the number of CA 99 south of Sacramento.  So if and when they decide to make an interstate out of 99, they could make changing the number of CA 9 part of the same bill, yes? 

How did they do it in 1964 - one big bill with all the changes, or a separate bill for every route?


It was one huge multi-page bill that listed all the affected routes, shepherded through the state legislative by state Senator Randolph Collier (D-Yreka), who performed that same duty for virtually every highway funding bill since he got into office in the '30's and until he retired.   Was widely considered the "godfather" or "patron saint" of the California Freeway & Expressway system (and frequently cited in CHPW!).

Plus there are a lot of instances outside of the 1964 Renumbering where the legislature defined/redefined multiple routes.  Pretty much new route added in 1970 was part of Legislative Chapter 1473 as an example.

Thanks to you both :)  I was sure someone would know.
