Rep. Green Praises Lady Bird Johnson Stamp Announcement

Press Release

Location: Washington, DC

Rep. Gene Green praised the United States Postal Service's announcement that a stamp honoring the 100th anniversary of the birthday of Lady Bird Johnson, wife of the 36th President of the United States Lyndon Baines Johnson, will be issued.

"Lady Bird Johnson was an iconic Texan and beloved national figure. Her focus on beautification and nature preservation was significant nationwide and especially in Texas," stated Rep. Green. "We can thank her for the scenic wildflowers we see every spring that brighten our highways."

Congressman Green led a bipartisan letter to U.S. Postmaster Patrick Donahue in June asking that a Lady Bird Johnson stamp be issued in commemoration of her 100th birthday. The letter was also endorsed by Rep. Michael McCaul, Rep. Lloyd Doggett, Rep. Ralph Hall, Rep. Mike Conaway, Rep. Charlie Gonzalez, Rep. Joe Barton, and Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee.

Mrs. Johnson's Forever Stamp will feature her official White House portrait and will be available nationwide in December 2012.
