Sen. Boitano said in late 2010 that he plans on introducing a bill that would outlaw the practice of having public buildings named after politicians who are still in office. Boitano's bill will also look into seeing that existing buildings bearing the names of current public officials wipe off their names.
Boitano says he’s responding to anger from constituents who have seen an increasing number of public buildings, structures and other objects named for so-called public servants.
“It’s free advertising, 24/7,” Boitano says, “and it’s not right.”
