GOP Members Working on Evacuation Day

The Judiciary Committee may have nixed the proposed repeal of Evacuation Day and Bunker Hill Day as paid holidays by placing Senator Michael Knapik's bill in a study order, but House and Senate Republicans will be at the State House today, ready to assist constituents and to talk jobs and the economy.

Members are planning an open caucus and press availability for noon today, following a meeting with Massachusetts Taxpayers Foundation President Michael Widmer and Bill Vernon of the National Federation of Independent Business.

Meanwhile, the repeal effort continues to gain support in the media. Check out today's Boston Herald editorial, as well as Metro Boston and the Springfield Republican.
