President Signs Bill Naming Post Office for Height
President Barack Obama signed a bill naming a Washington post office after civil rights leader Dorothy Height.
Height, the longtime president of the National Council of Negro Women, died earlier this year. The bill designates the post office at 2 Massachusetts Ave. near Union Station as the Dorothy I. Height Post Office.
Sen. Ben Cardin of Maryland says he was honored to join the president Wednesday night for the bill signing.
