A bill sponsored by U.S. Sens. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) and Rob Portman (R-OH) to rename the United States Postal Service office on Tallmadge Road in Rootstown after Portage County Marine Jeremy Murray unanimously passed the Senate Monday night.
Congressman Tim Ryan (OH-17) has introduced companion legislation in the House of Representatives, where the bill currently awaits action from the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.
Murray, a native of Rootstown, was on his third tour of duty abroad when he was killed in Iraq in November 2005.
