CONGRESSWOMAN ELISE STEFANIK
H.Res. 4840 is expected to be considered on the floor of the House on Friday, March 19, 2010, under a motion to suspend the rules, requiring a two-thirds vote for passage. The legislation was introduced Rep. Patrick Tiberi (R-OH) March 12, 2010.
H.R. 4840 would designate the facility of the United States Postal Service located at 1979 Cleveland Avenue in Columbus, Ohio, as the "Clarence D. Lumpkin Post Office".
Community resident and activist Clarence D. Lumpkin presented a speech to Columbus City Council addressing the needs of the Linden community, a neighborhood located about three miles north of downtown Columbus that had suffered a severe economic decline in the 1960's and 70's.
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.
