Senate Approves Latta-authored Legislation Naming Findlay Post Office After Former U.S. Rep. Mike Oxley

Washington, July 15, 2016 | Drew Griffin (202-225-6405)

Yesterday, the U.S. Senate unanimously approved legislation authored by Congressman Bob Latta (R-Bowling Green) to name the Findlay Post Office after former U.S. and Ohio Representative Mike Oxley. The bill, H.R. 4925, designates the post office at 229 West Main Cross Street in Findlay, Ohio as the ‘Michael Garver Oxley Memorial Post Office Building.’ The legislation recently passed the U.S. House of Representatives and now heads to the President’s desk to be signed into law. Congressman Oxley served over thirty years in the Ohio legislature and in Congress where he rose to become Chairman of the Financial Services Committee.
 
“Ohio lost an exemplary leader and public servant when Mike Oxley passed away earlier this year," said Latta. “His work in Columbus and Washington on behalf of his constituents should not be forgotten and renaming the Findlay Post Office in his honor will be a fitting tribute. I thank the Senate, and specifically Senator Portman, for their efforts to quickly approve this legislation, and I look forward to the President signing it into law."
