CONGRESSWOMAN ELISE STEFANIK
S. 1314 is expected to be considered on the floor of the House on Monday, November 16, 2009, under a motion to suspend the rules, requiring a two-thirds vote for passage. The legislation was introduced by Sen. Ron Wyden (D-OR) June 22, 2009.
S. 1314 would designate the facility of the United States Postal Service located at 630 Northeast Killingsworth Avenue in Portland, Oregon, as the "Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Post Office."
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.
