Las Vegas Airport To Be Renamed For Harry Reid

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports:

The Clark County Commission on Tuesday voted unanimously to rechristen McCarran International Airport for former Nevada Sen. Harry Reid.

Spearheaded by Commissioner Tick Segerblom, who tried and failed as a state senator in 2017 to rename McCarran after the longtime influential Democratic lawmaker, the commission directed county staff to submit a request for the name change to the Federal Aviation Administration.

“This is about making a change for the better,” Commissioner William McCurdy II said. The polarizing plan calls for one of the busiest airports in the country to become Harry Reid International Airport, a process that Segerblom has acknowledged could take years to complete and vowed would not use taxpayer dollars.
