LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Clark County commissioners introduced an ordinance Tuesday to change the county's code references from McCarran International Airport to Harry Reid International Airport.

The FAA approved the name change back in June, but no formal date has been announced for when that change could be made. There was a stipulation that no taxpayer money would be used for the name change.

If this new ordinance passes, all references to McCarran International Airport in Clark County codes and ordinances would be changed to refer to the new name, Harry Reid International Airport.

Tuesday, the county reported a public hearing has been scheduled for Dec. 21 at 10 a.m., as is required for such a change to be ratified.
