California To Mark 'Ronald Reagan Day'

Former first lady Nancy Reagan joined California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger in Simi Valley for a ceremonial signing of a bill making it Ronald Reagan Day every Feb. 6 in California.

The late president — and former California governor — was born Feb. 6, 1911, so the 100th anniversary of his birth is approaching.

The 89-year-old former first lady, wearing a yellow pantsuit and balancing on a cane and the governor's arm, walked into the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library. She smiled as Schwarzenegger sat at a desk and ceremoniously signed a pair of bills Tuesday morning. He officially signed them July 19.

The other bill establishes a commission to plan Reagan centennial events.

Schwarzenegger told the audience, "Ronald Reagan is my hero."

The governor says Ronald Reagan Day will allow schools to teach about Reagan and be a day in which Californians can remember his legacy.

Other Californians honored with official days include farm labor leader Cesar Chavez, gay rights crusader Harvey Milk and environmental icon John Muir, founder of the Sierra Club.
