LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — The Clark County Commission briefly discussed Tuesday morning the possible name change of McCarran International Airport.

No action was taken but the item that could change the airport's name to Harry Reid Las Vegas International Airport was tabled until the next meeting for further discussion.

The name change has its share of critics, including the Clark County Republican Party, which started a petition against renaming the airport. As of Tuesday evening, the petition had more than 1,600 signatures.
