Posted: Tuesday, December 17, 2013


A bill has been introduced in the Guam legislature by Senator Tommy Morrison which would restore the Guam Discovery Day annual non-working public holiday.

The Guam Discovery Day annual non-working public holiday was scrapped a decade ago (2002-12-03) under the provisions of Guam Legislative Bill No. 343, "An Act To Repeal And Reenact Section 1000, Repeal Section 1001 Of Title 1 And To Add Section 4109.5 Of Title 4 Of The Guam Code Annotated Relative To The Reduction Of The Number Of Government Of Guam Holidays".

Other public holidays canceled at the same time were: Martin Luther King Jr.'s birthday, Presidents Day, Discovery Day, Good Friday and The Feast of the Immaculate Conception Our Lady of Camarin Day, although the Feast of the Immaculate Conception Our Lady of Camarin Day public holiday was saved in extremis (2002-12-05). The Guam public holiday for the birthday of Martin Luther King Jr. was restored a few years later (2008-04-26).
