Senate of Pennsylvania
Session of 2021 - 2022 Regular Session


Posted: October 26, 2021 09:39 AM
From: Senator John DiSanto
To: All Senate members
Subject: Recognizing October 2021 as "Italian American Heritage Month" (Columbus Referenced)
While I had recently co-sponsored a different resolution recognizing October 2021 as “Italian-American Heritage Month in Pennsylvania,” I learned that resolution differs significantly from prior years’ resolutions on the matter and removes any reference to Christopher Columbus.

I believe it is worth noting the achievements of Christopher Columbus, for whom a Federal and State holiday is recognized, in proclaiming “Italian-American Heritage Month in Pennsylvania.” Therefore, I am offering a new resolution. I hope you will join me in acknowledging the contributions of Italian-Americans as well as Christopher Columbus, the first Italian to travel to the Americas.

The full text of my resolution is attached.
