Armenian Genocide Resolution Submitted to Ohio State Assembly

(Combined Sources)–The assistant House Democratic leader of the Ohio State Assembly–Todd Book–submitted a draft resolution (126HB499) to the Ohio State Assembly Wednesday–which–if passed–will designate April 24 of each year "Armenian Genocide Remembrance Day."

"The twenty-fourth day of April is designated "Armenian Genocide Remembrance Day" in remembrance of the killing of one and one-half million Armenia’s by the Turks of the Ottoman Empire in the years 1915 and 1916," says the resolution.

Speaking to Radio Liberty–Armenian National Committee of America representative Elizabeth Chouldjian said the text of the resolution is very simple. The ANCA has sent appreciation letters to the Ohio State Assembly.
