President Bush may be out of office, but a slew of Texas lawmakers want to honor him in his hometown.

Representative Mike Conaway is sponsoring a bill that would rename Midland's Federal Courthouse after both President Bushes.

So far, a half-dozen Texas Democrats are on board and co-sponsoring the bill, along with about two dozen GOP lawmakers.

Conaway tried pushing the bill through Congress last year, but it didn't make it to a vote.
