House GOP actually voted for this?
Here’s the EPA announcement:
This Wednesday, July 17th, at 11:30 am ET, there will be a ceremony to name the EPA Agency Headquarters in honor of President Bill Clinton. We invite you to join in this historic occasion by viewing the event in selected video conference rooms around headquarters and our regions or watching it on IPTV.
In December 2012, the U.S. Congress passed legislation to name our Agency Headquarters building at 1200 Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, D.C. as the “William Jefferson Clinton Federal Building.”
At that time, U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer, who authored the legislation,
stated that “Bill Clinton demonstrated a strong commitment to protecting
public health and the environment . [his] Administration created the Office of Children’s Health Protection, tightened drinking water standards for toxins such as arsenic, and reduced harmful air pollution that causes heart attacks, strokes, and premature deaths. He has continued to champion the environment.”
The event to honor the two-term president, which is being organized by the U.S. Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works and President Clinton’s office, will be held in the Rachel Carson Great Room (Green Room) at EPA Headquarters. This event is by invitation only.
As you may be aware, our Headquarters building was previously known as the “Ariel Rios Building,” and was formerly the location of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) headquarters. The ATF is now located at 99 New York Avenue, NE in Washington, DC. The ATF will honor the memory of Special Agent Ariel Rios by naming the reflecting pool at the current ATF headquarters as the “Ariel Rios Reflecting Pool,” in accordance with the wishes of the family.
