State Assemblymember Jacqui Irwin and the Thousand Oaks City Council are working to have a portion of Highway 101 named in honor of Ventura County sheriff’s Sgt. Ron Helus, one of 12 people killed by a gunman in the Borderline Bar & Grill mass shooting Nov. 7.

Only the state Legislature can officially name a state highway, according to the California Department of Transportation.
