A Ceremony was held on July 17, 2013, to name the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Headquarters building in Washington, D.C., in honor of President Bill Clinton.
The U.S. Congress passed legislation in December 2012 to name the building at 1200 Pennsylvania Avenue 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."
