This bill would designate the first Monday in March as COVID-19 Remembrance Day to honor and remember people who have died or suffered from COVID-19; the frontline and essential workers; and residents of the state who volunteered to support their neighbors and local communities.

Co-sponsors Reps. Mindy Domb (D-Amherst) and Natalie Blais (D-Sunderland) did not respond to repeated requests by Beacon Hill Roll Call asking them why they sponsored the bill.

A similar bill filed by the same duo died from inaction in the House last year after it had received a favorable report from the Committee on State Administration and Regulatory Oversight which recommended its passage.
