Nearly 11 months after the assassination attempt on the life of Arizona Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, lawmakers have honored one of the six people fatally wounded.
By a vote of 419 to 0, Republicans and Democrats put aside the usual partisanship that floods the floor of the U.S. House to memorialize the first congressional aide killed in the line of duty, Gabriel Zimmerman, by naming a Capitol Visitors Center meeting room after him.
Zimmerman organized the "Congress on Your Corner" event at which the alleged gunman, Jared Loughner, opened fire. At 30, Zimmerman was described as a dedicated, caring staffer who was full of life.
A dedication ceremony is expected sometime after the new year.
