The United States Senate has agreed to name the the federal building and United States Courthouse in Midland after former presidents George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush.
The Bush family spent several years in Midland, well before they were elected to the White House.
George W. Bush's wife -- former First Lady Laura Bush -- is also from Midland.
The Senate agreement was met with rave reviews from Texas lawmakers in the U.S. Senate.
"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. John Cornyn (R).
"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," said Rep. Mike Conaway (R-TX-11).
Conaway pushed for the new courthouse name by sponsoring a bill in 2011.
The federal courthouse building in Midland holds hearings, arraignments and trials for many federal cases in West Texas.
