NEBO, N.C. - A ranger station could soon honor a North Carolina forest officer killed in the line of duty.
The House unanimously passed a bill to designate the Nebo station the Jason Crisp Forest Service Building.
Crisp and his
K-9 partner Maros were shot and killed by Troy Whisnant during a manhunt in March.
The bill still has to be approved by the Senate.
