What is House Bill H.R. 2291?

This bill would rename the post office at 450 Lexington Avenue in New York, New York, as the "Vincent R. Sombrotto Post Office."

Vincent Sombrotto (1923 - 2013) started out his career in the postal service as a letter carrier at Grand Central Station in New York City. He was later known all over the country for leading a massive strike that shut down post offices across the nation in 1970. The strike was so large that President Richard Nixon had to call in the National Guard. Sombrotto later became the president of the National Association of Letter Carriers for 24 years.
