Being true to his word last May, congressman Jim Himes, representing CT’s 4th district, sponsored and introduced House Resolution 67, “expressing support for designation of February 12, 2015, as ‘Darwin Day’ and recognizing the importance of science in the betterment of humanity.” In prior years the resolution was introduced by former representative Rush Holt (NJ-12) and former representtive Pete Stark (CA-13).
Another Connecticut representative was a surprise co-sponsor of the resolution. Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro, representing CT’s 3rd district, signed on as a co-sponsor along with ten other representatives.
