Among the prefiled Senate legislation in the state of Missouri is a day for the birds.
Rodger Oakes has more from Jefferson City.
For most of the 20th century, birds had a celebrated day in the state of Missouri. Senator Stephen Stoll would like to see that day back on the calender.
Stoll's prefiled legislation would designate March 21 as "Bird Appreciation Day." State agencies, schools, and civic organizations would be encouraged to partake in activities promoting Missouri birds on the day.
Stoll was approached by a leader of Federated Garden Clubs of Missouri asking for the Bird Day Bill. Stoll said that bird day was acknowledged in Missouri until 1973.
From Jefferson City, I'm Rodger Oakes.
