CONGRESSWOMAN ELISE STEFANIK
S. 748 is expected to be considered on the floor of the House on Thursday, November 5, 2009, under a motion to suspend the rules, requiring a two-thirds vote for passage. The legislation was introduced by Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) March 31, 2009.
S. 748 would redesignate the facility of the United States Postal Service located at 2777 Logan Avenue in San Diego, California, as the "Cesar E. Chavez Post Office".
Cesar Estrada Chavez founded and led the first successful farm workers' union in U.S. history. When he passed away on 23 April 1993, he was president of the United Farm Workers of America, AFL-CIO.
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.
