State Building Named For Governor Rockefeller

State elected officials of the present gathered across the street from the capitol to honor one from the past on Wednesday.

Gov. Asa Hutchinson, Lt. Gov. Tim Griffin, and Attorney General Leslie Rutledge were among the state dignitaries who attended a commemoration ceremony to rename the National Old Line Building for former Gov. Winthrop Rockefeller. Members of the Rockefeller family, including Lisenne Rockefeller, Win Rockefeller, Jr. and Will Rockefeller, participated in the event.

Hutchinson noted Rockefeller’s contributions to the state as Arkansas governor from 1967-1971. He highlighted the former governor’s legacy of economic development efforts, prison reform, expanding the Freedom of Information Act, and improving race relations.      MORE
