Press Release

WASHINGTON – Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart (FL-25) released the following statement after the passage of H.R. 6303. Diaz-Balart successfully included a provision in the legislation to establish a dedicated ZIP Code for the Town of Miami Lakes.

“I am pleased that my provision to create a unique ZIP Code for Miami Lakes was included in this legislation. For years, Miami Lakes residents have dealt with many issues, ranging from higher insurance rates to election confusion, because the town does not have its own dedicated ZIP Code. Credit must be given to Mayor-elect Manny Cid, who made it a priority to resolve this for his constituency. After being turned away by the U.S. Postal Service several times, he reached out to me to see what could be done at the federal level, and I must say, it has been an absolute privilege working with Mayor-elect Cid. His dedication and perseverance on this issue is admirable, and I am glad that together we were able to get this important legislation passed in the House of Representatives.

“I'd like to thank Chairman Chaffetz for his leadership on this issue, and for the assistance his committee staff provided throughout this process.”
