The Missouri House of Representatives approved a measure to honor Medal of Freedom Winner Rush Limbaugh with an annual Rush Limbaugh Day in the Show Me State.
Rush Limbaugh was awarded the Medal of Freedom for his outstanding work during President Trump’s State of the Union Address in February 2020.
Rush died from lung cancer less than a year later.
FOX4 KC reported:
The Missouri House on Thursday voted in favor of creating “Rush Limbaugh Day.”
The GOP-led House tacked the provision on another bill, which then passed the chamber. The bill still needs Senate approval.
The proposal is one of several pitched by Republican state lawmakers to honor the late Limbaugh every Jan. 12, his birthday.
The Cape Girardeau native gained national fame before he died in February at age 70 after a battle with cancer.
