Bill to Abolish Columbus Day in Colorado Dies


A bill that would have repealed Columbus Day as a state-recognized holiday in Colorado died late Monday after four hours of testimony.

HB-1135 was killed by a 7-2 vote.

Bill sponsor House Representative Joe Salazar, a Democrat, told ICTMN Tuesday that some members of the House State, Veterans and Military Affairs committee conjured spurious reasons as to why they thought the holiday should continue in the state.
