The committee on transportation of the House of Representatives on Wednesday, October 10, approved the two bills proposing to rename the Clark International Airport to Diosdado Macapagal International Airport.

House Bills 2274 and 8289 were approved in the House panel level after the provincial government of Pampanga expressed its support towards the proposal.

HB 2274, authored by Pampanga Representative Aurelio “Dong” Gonzales, has been pending before the committee since August 8, 2016. Meanwhile, HB 8289, filed by House Majority Leader and Camarines Sur 1st District Rep. Rolando Andaya Jr., Sagip Rep. Rodante Marcoleta, Pampanga 1st District Rep. Carmelo Lazatin II, and Bohol 3rd District Rep. Arthur Yap, was submitted on September 25, 2018.

Macapagal is the father of current House speaker and former president Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo.
