Earlier today, President Joe Biden signed a Bill making Juneteenth a federal holiday. It's a celebration of the end of slavery, and the bill declaring it a national holiday was passed with broad bipartisan support. Fourteen House Republicans voted No, but it appears their objections were based on the name of this holiday, not the substance of the bill. In response to this new federal holiday, Executive Lamont McClure has given workers the day off.
Expect to see most places remain open. This includes stock exchanges, banks and the mail. The USPS explained it needs time to work the holiday into its schedule.
