California could soon be the next state to do away with Columbus Day thanks to a bill proposed by Assemblymember Roger Hernandez (D-West Covina). The Native American Day bill, or AB 55, would replace Columbus Day, which falls on the second Monday in October, with "Native American Day." Assemblymember Hernandez proposed the bill Monday [Jan 7, 2013].

The initiative has some organization and segments of the Italian and Italian American community in California up in arms. 

On what side of the issue are you? Does it really matter that Columbus Day stays or goes?

...yeah, I was thinking that maybe we should do away also with Presidents' Day (George Washington's birthday).
That didn't work out too well for Native Americans either...
