WASHINGTON DC - The U-S Senate unanimously passed a bill Wednesday. It would re-name the under construction federal courthouse in Jefferson City after former US Senator Kit Bond.

Bond, also a former Missouri Governor, already has two Missouri bridges named after him, and a building on the MU campus.

"The people of Jefferson City, the leadership of Jefferson City, has been terrific in doing a lot of things," Bond said. "They absolutely needed that federal courthouse. It was a pleasure to work with them on it."

Senator Roy Blunt introduced the bill and Senator Claire McCaskill co-sponsored it.
The house still has to vote on the measure.
