Pa. designates Aug. 9 Coal Miners Day
BILL O ’ BOYLE boboyle@timesleader.com
The state legislature has approved a resolution designating Aug. 9 as Coal Miners Day to honor those 51,514 Pennsylvania coal miners who died on the job since 1870.
State Rep. Ed Staback, D-Eynon, authored the resolution and three Luzerne County legislators – Phyllis Mundy, John Yudichak and Karen Boback – have signed on as co-sponsors.
Gov. Ed Rendell has issued a gubernatorial proclamation in support of the celebration that pays tribute to all Pennsylvania coal miners.
“For me and others like me who had a family member who worked in the mines, this day will serve as a reminder of a life of work that was tough and dangerous, but a job that laid the foundation for the growth of this region,â€

Shhh! It's government! If there is one already, now ya got two! Now use this to have a holiday declared and get a day off, then do it again for the second day! Just wait a few years for a change in administration. :wink:

I so love a good search idea:

Each of the House Resolutions are for a specific day and not an annual day.

This year it's Aug 9th.

Here are the bills:
