Trump Signs Law Renaming Post Office After Former Senator Dick Lugar

WASHINGTON – Today, U.S. Senators Todd Young (R-Ind.) and Mike Braun (R-Ind.) announced that President Trump has signed into law legislation that renames the Circle City Post Office at 456 N. Meridian Street after former U.S. Senator Richard Lugar.  

“When Senator Richard Lugar passed away last year, Indiana and the entire country lost a giant. 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. In 2017, he stood by me as I took my oath of office in the U.S. Senate, and I will never forget his support through the years. Senator Lugar left an impact on Indiana that will be felt for years to come, and today only reaffirms his legacy will continue to live on,” said Senator 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 Office after him and glad we got this accomplished,” said Senator Mike Braun.


On Thursday, October 1, 2020, the President signed into law: S. 3105, which designates a facility of the United States Postal Service located at 456 North Meridian Street in Indianapolis, Indiana, as the Richard G. Lugar Post Office. (White House, Press Release, 10/01/20)
