Annual Business Social Responsibility Awards Luncheon
ABOUT THE AWARD
On April 4, 1985, Governor Richard D. Lamm signed House Bill 1201, the historic legislation that created the Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday in Colorado.
The Colorado Holiday legislation was first introduced in 1975 by then State Representative Wellington E. Webb. He went on to introduce bills two more times in 1976 and 1977, but each bill failed to gain the needed support.
