* It’s becoming clear that traffic is way down today. I’m basically blogging for legislators and the smattering of folks who happen to be at the Statehouse, or who don’t have plans today. I’m not complaining. Just saying.
From Rep. Jeanne Ives…
I find Memorial Day a very moving and important holiday. I filed HR1130 with bi-partisan support to ask that we not have session on Memorial Day out of respect for our nation’s forces who have died in war. This resolution in still in rules committee.
The majority of those who serve with me in the General Assembly are genuine in their esteem for the heroes we honor today and the profound contributions that have made to secure our freedoms. Many of them have joined me on this resolution.
If not this year, for years going forward, I believe we should honor the holiday as originally intended by participating in our community ceremonies that honor our fallen soldiers.
* The Question: Should the General Assembly do all it can to avoid meeting on Memorial Day? Take the poll and then explain your answer in comments, please.
