Congressman Collins, Senator Isakson, and Senator Perdue Introduce Legislation to Name Gainesville Courthouse After Former U.S. District Judge Sidney Smith

WASHINGTON—Today, Congressman Doug Collins (R-Ga.), Senator Johnny Isakson (R-Ga.), and Senator David Perdue (R-Ga.) introduced legislation to name the federal courthouse in Gainesville, Georgia the “Sidney Olsin Smith, Jr. Federal Building and United States Courthouse”. The three members issued the following joint statement after the identical bills were filed in both the House and Senate:

“Judge Smith dedicated his life to serving the public, and his influence is still felt here in Gainesville. As a veteran, lawyer, judge, and through his longtime involvement with Brenau University, he was committed to service. It is fitting that we commemorate his service to the community and the state of Georgia by naming this courthouse in his honor. The federal courthouse in Gainesville is a symbol of public service and civic duty, and Judge Smith dedicated his life to the high ideals of justice, honor, and family. Naming the courthouse after him will keep his legacy alive for years to come.”
