Little Rock airport may lose Clintons’ names
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.
