"EPA Building Named For Bill Clinton; He Says That's Fitting"

"The environment may not come to mind when most people think about former President Bill Clinton, but on Wednesday he defended his legacy as the Environmental Protection Agency's headquarters in Washington, D.C., was renamed in his honor."

"At a ceremony in the EPA complex, Clinton mentioned reading an article that questioned whether his was the right name to put on the building.

"I think it more than sort of fits — not for me, but for what we did. For what our administration did," Clinton said in remarks greeted by applause from a small crowd that included senators, a congressman and former members of his administration."
