Senators Young and Braun, Representative Carson introduce Bill to Rename Indianapolis Post Office After Senator Richard Lugar

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Senator Todd Young, Senator Mike Braun, Representative André Carson (IN-07), Representative Pete Vislosky (IN01), Representative Jackie Walorski (IN-02), Representative Jim Banks (IN-03), Representative Jim Baird (IN-04), Representative Susan Brooks (IN-05), Representative Greg Pence (IN-06), Representative Larry Bucshon (IN-08), and Representative Trey Hollingsworth (IN-09) introduced legislation to rename the United States Post Office building at 456 North Meridian Street in Indianapolis after Senator Richard G. Lugar.


“Senator Lugar leaves a legacy as an exemplar of wisdom, civility, and bipartisanship. Many years ago, I had the privilege of working on Senator Lugar’s staff, and I had a front row seat to history, watching a statesman at work. This is one small way we can ensure Senator Lugar’s legacy lives on,” said Senator Todd Young.


“Senator Richard Lugar is a towering figure in Hoosier history and one of the greatest statesmen ever to serve in the U.S. Senate: it’s only fitting for us to rename the Indianapolis Post Officer after him,” said Senator Mike Braun.


“Senator Lugar’s distinguished career in public service and his statesmanship are an enduring source of pride and inspiration for Indianapolis – the city where he was born and raised, and served as Mayor. I’m proud to help preserve his legacy by honoring him in this way,” said Representative André Carson. 

This bipartisan, bicameral legislation designates Indianapolis’ main post office as the Richard G. Lugar Post Office Building.  “To designate the facility of the United States Postal Service located at 456 North Meridian Street in Indianapolis, Indiana, as the ‘Richard G. Lugar Post Office Building.’”
