DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) The Iowa House has approved a resolution saying state buildings should not be named after elected officials while they're in office.

The resolution is aimed at the Iowa Board of Regents, which in April approved plans to name a public policy center at Iowa State University after Democratic U.S. Senator Tom Harkin.

The Harkin Institute for Public Policy would house Harkin's papers and be a resource and information center. Supporters are raising $10 million as an endowment.

Republicans protested the plan when it was went before the regents. The House on Tuesday approved the resolution on a 55-39 vote.

Harkin, an Iowa State alumnus, was elected to the U.S. House in 1974 and U.S Senate in 1984. He is now in his fifth term in the Senate.
