On December 3, 2020, it unanimously passed the United States Senate, and was signed into law by President Donald Trump on December 21, 2020.   

“By renaming the Henning Post Office and unveiling the plaque here today in these women’s honor, we will remember their lives and their strong dedication to the community and state they loved and called home. I am grateful and deeply honored for the opportunity to recognize and honor Paula Croom Robinson, Judy Spray, and their families and loved ones with this legislation. Our community in West Tennessee will never forget these two women who dedicated their lives to public service,” said Rep. Kustoff.
