CONGRESSWOMAN ELISE STEFANIK
H.Res. 3951 is expected to be considered on the floor of the House on Tuesday, December 8, 2009, under a motion to suspend the rules, requiring a two-thirds vote for passage. The legislation was introduced Rep. Anh "Joseph" Cao (D-TX) on October 28, 2009.
H.R. 3951 would designate the facility of the United States Postal Service located at 2000 Louisiana Avenue in New Orleans, Louisiana, as the "Roy Rondeno, Sr. Post Office Building".
Roy Rondeno Sr was a beloved Uptown letter carrier, who died on Oct. 2, 2009 of heart failure at University Hospital six days after being critically injured in a traffic accident while he stood by his truck, sorting mail. He was 57 years of age.
According to CBO, any costs related to new post office designations, which include the cost of changing the name on the building, signs, and maps, are not significant.
