PA Dems Want To Make Jan. 6 A State Holiday To Condemn Protest

  • Three state lawmakers from Philadelphia said they will soon introduce legislation establishing the observance of  “Jan. 6 Day” in public schools.
  • The companion proposals from Sen. Art Haywood and Reps. Chris Rabb and Ed Neilson – all Democrats representing districts in Philadelphia – would also support a resolution to formally condemn the events at the Capitol in Washington, D.C. on Jan. 6, 2021 and designate the two-year anniversary of the incident as “1/6 Day” in Pennsylvania.
  • Rabb and Neilson teased the upcoming legislation last week and said schools should recognize the day and honor the five police officers who died after their “hours-long battle with more than 9,000 rioters.”
