AN ACT proclaiming March 31 of each year as a day to remember Terri Schiavo.

Be it Enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Court convened:

1 Intent. The general court hereby establishes March 31 as a day to remember Terri Schiavo who died tragically on March 31, 2005. The general court recognizes that her death occurred as a result of the failure of the state and federal court systems to uphold the words of the United States Declaration of Independence “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.”

2 New Section; Remembrance of Terri Schiavo. Amend RSA 4 by inserting after section 13-q the following new section:

4:13-r Day in Remembrance of Terri Schiavo. The governor shall issue an annual proclamation calling for March 31 as a day to remember the tragic death of Terri Schiavo.

3 Effective Date. This act shall take effect 60 days after its passage.
