Many of us are thinking about the upcoming Memorial Day weekend. What to barbecue is top of mind.
Some WI lawmakers are also contemplating Veterans Day and how we observe that special day.
Bills introduced in both the state Senate and state Assembly would designate November 11, the day on which Veterans Day is traditionally celebrated, as a state holiday on which state offices are closed. Under current law, the offices of the agencies of state government are generally closed on Saturdays, Sundays, and a total of nine state holidays. These bills also increase the number of regular paid holidays state employees receive annually from nine days to ten days and eliminate the personal floating holiday provided to state employees in recognition of Veterans Day.
So far, state Senator Dave Craig who represent Franklin has not signed on the Senate bill as a co-sponsor. State Representative Ken Skowronski who represents Franklin in the state Assembly is a co-sponsor of the Assembly bill.
