Name Change For Department Of The Navy?
A bill (H.R. 24) to change the name of the Department of the Navy to the Department of the Navy and Marine Corps has 370 co-sponsors in the house, and will be debated in April. With that number of sponsors, the bill is likely to pass the House, as it has as an amendment in previous Congresses. When it does pass, action will move to the Senate, under S.504. The Senate is where the idea has died in the past. With all the Senate has on their plate, I'm guessing they won't get to it until possibly a lame-duck session after the November elections.
