Tennessee U.S. Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) has filed legislation which would make September 11 a national holiday. Sen. Blackburn filed the September 11 Day Of Remembrance Act last week, stating the bill would follow through with promises made to all those affected during the terrorist attacks in New York City 20 years ago. “Twenty years ago, we watched as terrorists brutally attacked our nation,” Blackburn stated. “The United States pledged we would never forget September 11, 2001. This legislation will uphold that promise to our heroes.” The bill, otherwise known as S.2735, has been referred to the Judiciary Committee in the Senate for review.
