DescriptionNevada’s next governor wants to rename the state’s two busiest public airports after historical elected officials.

Governor-elect Steve Sisolak announced during Tuesday’s Clark County Commission meeting that he will seek to rename McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas after former U.S. Senate leader Harry Reid before the end of the year. Reid, who is battling pancreatic cancer, served in the Senate from 1987 until he retired in January 2017.

Sisolak said he also wants to work with officials in northern Nevada to rename Reno-Tahoe International Airport after the late Paul Laxalt, a former Nevada governor and U.S. senator. Laxalt, who died in August at age 96, is the grandfather to Adam Laxalt, the GOP candidate that Sisolak felled in the governor’s race earlier this month.

“They both made massive contributions to the long-term well-being of the state of Nevada, and sometimes we don’t recognize people appropriately,” Sisolak said.
