Currently, Columbus day is one of 10 legal holidays in Colorado. Section 2 of the bill repeals Columbus day as a state legal holiday. Consequently, in order to maintain the number of days off enjoyed by state employees, section 3 grants state employees an annual 'floating' holiday, on a day in October of each employee's choice, in accordance with rules promulgated by the department of personnel and subject to approval by each employee's supervisor.
Section 1 contains a nonstatutory legislative declaration, and sections 4 and 5 make conforming amendments.
(Note: This summary applies to this bill as introduced.)
