Am. S. B. No. 134  As Enrolled
(129th General Assembly)
(Amended Senate Bill Number 134)

To enact section 5.2267 of the Revised Code to designate March 30 as "Vietnam Veterans' Day," and to declare an emergency.

Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of Ohio:

SECTION 1. That section 5.2267 of the Revised Code be enacted to read as follows:

Sec. 5.2267. The thirtieth day of March is designated as "Vietnam Veterans' Day" in honor of those who fought, died, or are still unaccounted for in the Vietnam war.

Section 2. This act is declared to be an emergency measure necessary for the immediate preservation of the public peace, health, and safety. The reason for the emergency is the fact that veterans who served in the Vietnam conflict have not received their full share of recognition, and immediate enactment will allow for commemorations on March 30, 2012, in recognition of March 30, 1973, the day when all United States troops withdrew from Vietnam. Therefore, this act goes into immediate effect.
