ROCK SPRINGS, Wyo. (AP) - The Rock Springs/Sweetwater County Airport in southwest Wyoming is changing its name effective Feb. 1.

The Rock Springs Rocket-Miner reports that the airport board has voted to call it Southwest Wyoming Regional Airport.

Board chairman Jim Wamsley says the change is a big step in trying to develop the airport and the region it supports by providing a brand that is recognized in the marketplace.

Board members say the move will benefit economic development efforts in the region by helping with business recruitment.
