Republican senator Tony Strickland, whose district includes most of Santa Barbara County, wants a memorial statue erected in Sacramento, where Reagan served two terms as governor. The project, which would be paid for completely through private donations, is estimated to cost $50,000.

SB 963 calls for the statue to be placed near the entrance to the State Capitol building in time to mark the centennial of Reagan’s birth on Feb. 6, 2011.

If the bill is passed, the state department of general services will commission an artist and instal the statue.
