    (b) References.--Any reference in a law, map, regulation, document, paper, or other record of the United States to the flight research center referred to in subsection (a) shall be deemed to be a reference to the ``NASA Neil A. Armstrong Flight Research Center''.

    SEC. 2. REDESIGNATION OF WESTERN AERONAUTICAL TEST RANGE.

    (a) Redesignation.--The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Western Aeronautical Test Range in California is redesignated as the ``NASA Hugh L. Dryden Aeronautical Test Range''.

    The SPEAKER pro tempore. Pursuant to the rule, the gentleman from Texas (Mr. Smith) and the gentlewoman from Maryland (Ms. Edwards) each will control 20 minutes.

    The Chair recognizes the gentleman from Texas.

    General Leave Mr. SMITH of Texas. Mr. Speaker, I ask unanimous consent that all Members may have 5 legislative days to revise and extend their remarks and to include extraneous material on H.R. 667, the bill now under consideration.

    The SPEAKER pro tempore. Is there objection to the request of the gentleman from Texas? [[Page H603]] There was no objection.

    Mr. SMITH of Texas. Mr. Speaker, I yield as much time as he may consume to the gentleman from California, Kevin McCarthy, the majority whip and, I might add, the originator and author of this bill.
