Texas Courthouse named after former Presidents Bush

WASHINGTON – Today U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) and U.S. Representative Mike Conaway (TX-11) released the following statements after the Senate passed a bill renaming the Federal building and U.S. Courthouse in Midland, TX after former Presidents George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush:

"It's my distinct honor to help preserve the legacy of two great leaders and Texans as they continue to leave their mark on this nation, and I cannot think of a better way to do that than by memorializing them in Midland," said Sen. Cornyn.

"In their 20 years of service in the White House, Presidents George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush distinguished themselves as exemplary American leaders. Renaming this courthouse in Midland is a meaningful tribute to these two great Texans," Rep. Conaway said.

The bill, originally sponsored by Rep. Conaway and passed by the House of Representatives in 2011, will redesignate the Federal building and United States Courthouse located at 200 East Wall Street in Midland, Texas, as the "George H. W. Bush and George W. Bush United States Courthouse and George Mahon Federal Building."
