Will California Finally Get Harvey Milk Day?

What it’s take, an act of Congress to get Harvey Milk Day on the books? Just about. California’s Senate Education Committee voted 7-2 today to move to the full Senate a bill that would make Harvey Milk Day — May 22, Milk’s birthday — a statewide reality. Dustin Lance Black was on hand to testify about the significance (i.e. an openly gay man on every calendar!), though Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger vetoed a similar bill last year. [AP]
