Press Release

WASHINGTON – Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart (FL-25) released the following statement after introducing legislation that would require the United States Postal Service to create a unique ZIP Code for the Town of Miami Lakes, Florida. Last year, Diaz-Balart supported similar legislation which passed the House, but did not become law.

“I am pleased to introduce legislation similar to what the House passed last year that will create a unique ZIP Code for Miami Lakes. For far too long, Miami Lakes residents have dealt with the negative impact of lacking a unique ZIP Code for their town. From higher insurance rates to election confusion, there are a number of reasons why a dedicated ZIP Code is necessary. It has been a privilege to partner with Mayor Manny Cid as we continue to work towards a resolution. Even after encountering several roadblocks and denials from the United States Postal Service, he continued to find other options. I am grateful for his dedication to serving the Town of Miami Lakes, and look forward to seeing this bill through the committees of jurisdiction for a floor vote.”
