Legislative Updates


As you may know, H.R. 2291 was introduced by Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-NY) last year to designate the New York City Post Office located at 450 Lexington Avenue in New York City as the "Vincent R. Sombrotto Post Office.” As is customary with post office–naming legislation, the bill needs just one more co-sponsor from New York, Rep. Gregory Meeks, before the Oversight and Government Reform Committee, which has jurisdiction over post office naming would typically discharge the bill to the House floor. To honor President Emeritus Sombrotto, we urge all NALC members to continue to ask for broad support from the House of Representatives to move this bill forward. Click here to see if your representative has co-sponsored this legislation. If he or she has not, please contact his or her office and ask for support in honoring our former president.
