Sens. Cruz, Cornyn Bill to Rename Laredo Courthouse Signed Into Law

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Sens. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and John Cornyn (R-Texas) today released the following statements after President Trump signed into law their bill to rename Laredo’s federal courthouse the “George P. Kazen Federal Building and United States Courthouse.” Congressman Henry Cuellar (D-Texas) introduced a similar bill in the U.S. House of Representatives, which passed earlier this month. 

“Judge Kazen has served Texas and the United States honorably,” Sen. Cruz said. “Naming the Laredo courthouse after him will serve as a lasting testament to his legacy, and I am grateful the President has signed this bill into law.”

“Judge Kazen made countless contributions to the community of Laredo and our nation’s judicial system,” Sen. Cornyn said. “I was glad to join efforts with Senator Cruz and Representative Cuellar to honor Judge Kazen’s dedicated public service and ensure future generations of Texans can reflect on his legacy.”
