There are two news reports out of Washington D.C. confirming that President Barack Obama signed a bill just hours ago, Wednesday, Nov. 13, 2013, renaming Pinellas County’s Bay Pines VA Medical Center in Florida after the late Congressman C.W. Bill Young.
Young passed away last month while serving his 22nd term in Congress. He served nine years in the Army National Guard and six more years in the Reserves. In Congress, Young was a tireless advocate for veterans and the military.
Stars and Stripes White House, Capitol Hill and veterans reporter Leo Shane III posted the breaking news on his Twitter account, @LeoShane:
White House has officially signed into law renaming the Bay Pines VA center in Florida after the late Rep. C.W. Bill Young.
Another report of the bill signing was posted by Tampa Bay Times Washington Bureau chief Alex Leary.
