ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — The Maryland General Assembly has voted to designate March 30 as a commemorative day recognizing Vietnam Veterans.
The House of Delegates voted unanimously for the Senate measure on Thursday, sending it to Gov. Larry Hogan. Doug Mayer, a Hogan spokesman, says the governor will sign the bill.
The measure, sponsored by Sen. John Astle, establishes a “Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans Day.” The legislation is an emergency bill, so it takes effect immediately.
