Tennessee Lawmakers Propose Making ‘Super Bowl Monday’ a State Holiday

If two lawmakers in Tennessee have their way, the day after the Super Bowl could soon become an official holiday in their home state.

Sen. London Lamar (D-Memphis) and Rep. Joe Towns Jr. (D-Memphis) have introduced ab ill this week that would make the first Monday after the Super Bowl a holiday in the Volunteer State. To make that happen, the state would need to get rid of another holiday, so the lawmakers are proposing to get rid of Columbus Day.

Super Bowl Monday should be a federal holiday. Not just a state holiday in Tennessee.
