CONGRESSWOMAN ELISE STEFANIK
On Wednesday, November 28, 2012, the House is scheduled to consider H.R. 6604, under a suspension of the rules requiring a two-thirds majority vote for passage. The bill was introduced by Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on November 27, 2012, and referred to the Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure.
H.R. 6604 would designate the federal building currently known as Federal Office Building 8, located at 200 C Street Southwest in the District of Columbia, as the “Thomas P. O’Neill, Jr. Federal Building.”
Thomas Phillip “Tip” O’Neill, Jr. was born on December 9, 1912 in Cambridge, Massachusetts. He was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 1952. He served as Speaker of the House from 1977 until his retirement in 1987. O’Neill died on January 5, 1994.
A House office building on C Street Southeast in the District of Columbia was previously named for O’Neill, but the building was demolished in 2002.
A CBO score of H.R. 6604 was not available as of press time.
