US Virgin Islands Bill To Restore Public Holidays

Two US Virgin Islands senators are floating legislation that would restore the 3 non-working public holidays that were moved to Sundays, in 1999, by Governor Turnbull.

Two years ago (21-Dec-1999), the Governor of the US Virgin Islands, Charles W. Turnbull, 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.

He had asked for 5 public holidays to be canceled, but in the end he had to settle for only 3 canceled public holidays: Organic Act Day, Hurricane Supplication Day and Hurricane Thanksgiving Day.
