A West Texas Federal Building and courthouse have been renamed for two former presidents.

The Federal Building and U.S. Courthouse in Midland will now carry the names of Presidents George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush. The U.S. Senate passed a bill Tuesday renaming the facility in the Permian Basin city.

U.S. Senator from Texas John Cornyn released a statement saying,

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.”

Midland Congressman Mike Conaway also remarked adding,

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.”

Conaway sponsored the bill to rename the Federal Building and courthouse is 2011, where it easily passed the House of Representatives.
