Repeal Columbus Day As State Legal Holiday
Currently, Columbus day is one of 10 legal holidays in Colorado. Section 2 of the bill repeals Columbus day as a state legal holiday and replaces it with election day. 'Election day' is defined to fall on the day of a general election in even-numbered years and the day on which ballot issues must be decided under the state constitution in odd-numbered years.
Section 1 contains a nonstatutory legislative declaration and sections 4 and 5 make conforming amendments.
