Bill to Replace Columbus Day with Indigenous Peoples Day Moves Forward

 


Legislation that aims to recognize the contributions of Utah’s Native American community passed out of the Senate Health and Human Services Committee on a 3-1 vote Wednesday.

SB 170 – Indigenous Peoples Day, sponsored by Senator Jim Dabakis (Democrat – Salt Lake City), provides that the second Monday of October is called Indigenous Peoples Day, as opposed to it current moniker – Columbus Day.
