The GOP-controlled Missouri House voted on Thursday in favor of creating a “Rush Limbaugh Day” for the state in honor of the late conservative talk show host.
The legislation would make Jan. 12, Limbaugh’s birthday, the day to honor him. He was a native of Cape Girardeau, Missouri, and died in February age 70 after a battle with cancer.

The measure was tacked on to legislation that would create other days of remembrance.
“Rush Limbaugh’s contributions to broadcasting and the conservative movement cannot be overstated. He was, simply put, a legend who cannot be replaced,” state Rep. Hardy Billington, the sponsor of the measure, said in February when he first introduced legislation to name the day, according to multiple news outlets. “This is one way we can recognize the outstanding impact Rush Limbaugh has had on our state and country.”
Other measures in the legislation include making April 11-17 “Black Maternal Health Week,” Aug. 31 “Random Acts of Kindness Day,” and July 2 “Mormon War Remembrance Day,” according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
The bill will have to pass the Republican-controlled Senate before it can become law.
