Vermont Republican Gov.
Phil Scott said he would sign a bill that would abolish Columbus Day and replace it with “Indigenous Peoples’ Day.”
Vermont will become the third state to eliminate Columbus Day in favor of “Indigenous Peoples’ Day” and will join New Mexico and South Dakota once signed.
Alaska passed an “Indigenous Peoples’ Day” resolution in 2017 but had never officially recognized Columbus Day in the first place.
If Scott signs the bill, it will take effect immediately.
