U.S. Senators Bob Casey (D-Pa.) and Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) today commended the
passage of legislation to designate the new U.S. Courthouse in Harrisburg as
the “Sylvia H. Rambo United States Courthouse,” which is expected to open next
year. Toomey and Casey introduced this legislation in April, and Pennsylvania
U.S. Representatives Scott Perry (R-Pa.), Susan Wild (D-Pa.), Brian Fitzpatrick
(R-Pa.), Matt Cartwright (D-Pa.), Fred Keller (R-Pa.), and Guy Reschenthaler
(R-Pa.) introduced the House companion.
Rambo is a trailblazer in her career and an inspiration to countless young
women and public servants. She has served the judiciary for decades, and we are
lucky to have benefitted from her judgment and dedication here in Pennsylvania.
Naming this courthouse after Judge Rambo is in honor of her years of service to
the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. I am hopeful that the House will take
swift action to pass this bill so that we can make this dedication official,”
said Senator Casey
Rambo is a trailblazer–serving as the first female on the bench of the
Pennsylvania Court of Common Pleas for Cumberland County and the U.S. District
Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania. Her commitment to the law and
the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania is admirable, and, through this new
courthouse, her judicial legacy will be enshrined for generations of
Pennsylvanians to appreciate,” said Senator Toomey.
