Left handed Democrat president Barack Obama Signing legislation

First things first on a busy White House Friday.

Here's an announcement from the White House press office:

On Friday, January 29, 2010, the President signed into law:

H.R. 1817, which designates the facility of the United States Postal Service located at 116 North West Street in Somerville, Tennessee, as the “John S. Wilder Post Office Building,”

H.R. 2877, which designates the facility of the United States Postal Service located at 76 Brookside Avenue in Chester, New York, as the “1st Lieutenant Louis Allen Post Office,”

H.R. 3072, which designates the facility of the United States Postal Service located at 9810 Halls Ferry Road in St. Louis, Missouri, as the “Coach Jodie Bailey Post Office Building,”

H.R. 3319, which designates the facility of the United States Postal Service located at 440 South Gulling Street in Portola, California, as the “Army Specialist Jeremiah Paul McCleery Post Office Building,”

H.R. 3539, which designates the facility of the United States Postal Service located at 427 Harrison Avenue in Harrison, New Jersey, as the “Patricia D. McGinty-Juhl Post Office Building,”

H.R. 3667, which designates the facility of the United States Postal Service located at 16555 Springs Street in White Springs, Florida, as the “Clyde L. Hillhouse Post Office Building,”

H.R. 3767, which designates the facility of the United States Postal Service located at 170 North Main Street in Smithfield, Utah, as the “W. Hazen Hillyard Post Office Building,”

H.R. 3788, which designates the facility of the United States Postal Service located at 3900 Darrow Road in Stow, Ohio, as the “Corporal Joseph A. Tomci Post Office Building;” and

H.R. 4508, which extends the authorizations of certain Small Business Administration programs until April 30, 2010.    ####

Good to see Congress picked up the work pace after the president's State of the Union lecture and all of the fallout earlier this week here.

After all that, a pretty clear weekend ahead for the administration's top two ex-senators. Joe Biden heads for Delaware and Obama has a closed Saturday morning meeting with former President George H.W. Bush and then nothing else announced.
