Udall foundation renaming

Posted: Updated:

A name change is in the works for the Federally-funded Morris K. Udall Foundation.

A bill passed by Congress has renamed the office to also honor Congressman "Mo" Udall's older brother, former Interior Secretary Stewart Udall.

The measure's author, Congressman Raul Grijalva, calls it a fitting tribute since the Udall brothers frequently collaborated on environmental legislation, including preservation of millions of acres of public land. Stewart Udall will turn 90 in January.
