BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) – State Representative Matthew Willard prefiled a bill on February 28 that would take two days off the list of legal holidays in Louisiana.

As it currently stands in Louisiana, Robert E. Lee Day is marked on January 19 and Confederate Memorial Day is observed on June 3.

The 2022 Regular Legislative Session begins on Monday, March 14.
