Kyl, McCain Offer Bill to Name Courthouse after Judge Roll

A senior aide to Minority Whip Jon Kyl (R-AZ) tells Fox News that Senator John McCain (R-AZ) will join Kyl in introducing “legislation to rename the federal courthouse in Yuma, Arizona in honor of Judge John M. Roll.”

Roll and five others were killed in Saturday’s shooting massacre in Tucson that wounded 14 others, including Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, D-Ariz.

The Tucson courthouse where Judge Roll kept his chambers is already named for Evo DeConcini former State Attorney General, Supreme Court Judge and father of former Arizona Senator Dennis DeConcini.

Update (2/1): This bill has been adopted by unanimous consent.
