Senate Passes Bill to Rename Lexington Post Office after the late Representative Floyd Spence

WASHINGTON- U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today announced the Senate unanimously passed a bill designating the postal facility located at 1830 South Lake Drive in Lexington the ‘Floyd Spence Post Office Building.’ “Floyd Spence was a tireless advocate for the people of South Carolina, and played a tremendous role in strengthening the nation’s armed forces,” said Graham. “He served the people of Lexington County and the 2nd Congressional District for 40 years in both the South Carolina General Assembly and the United States House of Representatives. This honor is a fitting tribute to his contributions to the safety and security of our nation.” The U.S. House of Representatives passed the bill, which was introduced by Representative Joe Wilson on behalf of South Carolina’s House delegation, in March of this year.
