Illinois To Observe Barack Obama Day

Two days ago, I noted the birthday of former President Barack Obama, but his adopted home state has gone much farther.  The Illinois legislature, of which Obama was once a member, has designated August 4th as "Barack Obama Day".  Governor Bruce Rauner (R) signed the bill, which received no negative votes.  The day will be a commemorative holiday, which does not involve state government offices taking a day off.

Read more at the Washington Examiner, WGN, ABC7 and NBC5.  NBC5 has been cited by The Hill and The Blaze.
