Darwin Day bill in Hawaii

House Resolution 145, introduced in the Hawaii House of Representatives on March 7, 2014, would, if enacted, express the House's recognition of February 12 of each year as Darwin Day "to celebrate all of Charles Darwin's achievements in the field of science." The resolution is unusual in establishing Darwin Day on a perennial basis: previous Darwin Day resolutions, such as Virginia's House Resolution 884 in 2009, typically designate February 12 of the current year as Darwin Day. The sole sponsor of HR 145 is Kaniela Ing (D-District 11).
