Lit­tle Rock air­port may lose Clin­tons’ names

The Hamilton Spectator - - CANADA & WORLD -

A Repub­li­can state law­maker wants to re­move the names of Arkansas’s most fa­mous Democrats from Lit­tle Rock’s air­port. Sen. Ja­son Rapert says Lit­tle Rock’s air­port com­mis­sion dis­hon­oured a Na­tional Guard cap­tain when it re­named the air­port in 2012. He says it is em­bar­rass­ing to have the Clin­tons’ name on the air­port. He has writ­ten a bill that would pre­vent nam­ing cer­tain pub­licly funded fa­cil­i­ties af­ter liv­ing peo­ple. When the air­port was re­named, Democrats con­trolled the leg­is­la­ture and the gover­nor’s of­fice. Repub­li­cans now con­trol the state gov­ern­ment.
