BALTIMORE (AP) — The city of Baltimore is renaming a courthouse after the late Congressman Elijah Cummings. 
The Baltimore Sun reported that Baltimore City Council voted to make the change on Monday 
Mayor Bernard C. "Jack" Young had asked the council to push the legislation forward. He intends to sign the bill and formally unveil the new name for Courthouse East in the near future.
Cummings was chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Reform. He was also a powerful advocate for Baltimore and civil rights. He died in October.
Young said in a statement that the courthouse will "stand in perpetuity as a monument to Cummings' service to the common man, the rule of law in our society, and his commitment to economic justice for all."
