The Senate Votes To Make Juneteenth A National Holiday.


On Tuesday, the Senate voted unanimously to make Juneteenth a national holiday commemorating the abolition of slavery in the United States.

Senators did not object when Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) moved to pass the bill.

Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), who blocked the bill's passage last year, announced earlier on Tuesday that he was dropping his opposition to it.

“It appears that Congress wants to do it, so I won’t get in the way,” Johnson told Stardia.
