Clinton Presidential Library in Little Rock, Arkansas

The Little Rock National Airport has been renamed as Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport to honor former President Bill Clinton and his wife, the current U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. The seven-member Little Rock Municipal Airport Commission voted unanimously to honor the Clintons, according to Ruters. The former President is a native of Arkansas. He also served the state as governor before winning the Presidential election in 1992.

“The Clintons continue to have a major impact on our state and our local economy, and we believe renaming our airport in their honor is a fitting way to recognize their service and their position in Arkansas and our nation's history,” Reuters quoted Jim Dailey, the Chairman of the Little Rock Municipal Airport Commission as saying in a news release.
