The State Administration and Regulatory Committee held a virtual hearing on a proposal that would establish September 11 as a Day of Remembrance in recognition of the loss of life and service of first responders at the World Trade Center in New York City in 2001.

“A Day of Remembrance is a meaningful way for us to send the message, 21 years later, that we will never forget, and we will treat every future September 11th with the same level of respect that we have for the past 21 years,” said sponsor Sen. Patrick O’Connor (R-Weymouth). “This policy will become more and more necessary the further we get from 2001 and I am hopeful that the committee will report the bill out favorably.”
