The Governor of the US Virgin Islands, Charles W. Turnbull, has signed into law an Omnibus Act which removes 3 annual paid non-working public holidays from the US Virgin Islands' official list of public holidays.

Originally, Governor Turnbull had asked for 5 public holidays to be canceled; Holy Thursday, Easter Monday, Organic Act Day, Hurricane Supplication Day and Hurricane Thanksgiving Day.

The Omnibus Bill came back with 4 canceled public holidays, with Transfer Day being canceled instead of Holy Thursday and Easter Monday. This met with a line-item veto from Governor Turnbull who said that Transfer Day was too important a holiday to eliminate.
