Harvey Milk Day in California?

From theAdvocate.com

Harvey Milk Day is one step closer to reality in California.

A state senate committee gave the green light on Wednesday to designate May 22 as “Harvey Milk Day” in California; the bill now heads to the full senate. According to the Associated Press, the day would be a “day of special significance” recognizing Milk’s life and contributions to the state but would not be a holiday, meaning there would be no closures and the state wouldn’t incur any costs.

The bill may have to overcome a veto — Republican governor Arnold Schwarzenegger killed a nearly identical bill last year, saying it should be up to each community to determine if it wanted to honor Milk, the slain San Francisco city supervisor.

This would be an opportunity to let the Gov. know your thoughts on honoring our slain Hero.

  1. Were it not for the recent film, “Milk”, would this even be a reality right now?
