FAIRPORT, N.Y. (WHEC) -- Legislation to dedicate a Fairport post office in honor of the late Congresswoman Louise Slaughter and her husband, Bob, has passed both chambers of Congress.
It will now be sent to the president for his approval.
"Louise Slaughter was a dear friend, a trailblazer, and a champion for families in Monroe County and across the nation," said Rep. Morelle, who introduced the legislation. "It's truly a privilege to have introduced and passed this legislation honoring Louise and her husband, Bob Slaughter, whose immeasurable contributions have undoubtedly made our community a better place. The bill's widespread, bipartisan support is a testament to the profound impact Louise Slaughter has had on us all—and will have for years to come."
The facility is on Ayrault Road in Fairport.
Currently a carrier annex, the facility will be undergoing renovations over the next year to become a full retail post office.
Slaughter was 88 years old when she passed away in March of 2018.
