Late Judge's Name Proposed As Name For Tyler Federal Building

House Representative Ralph Hall of Rockwall has introduced a bill to call the federal buildings on Ferguson Street the William M. Steger Federal Building and United States Courthouse. Judge Steger served on the federal bench for 35 years, the last eight of those years in Tyler. He died last month at the age of 85. The bill still needs to pass the House, before going to the Senate.
