There is a controversy of -- over the holidays and Christmas specifically in Rhode Island.
Where is at a holiday tree or Christmas tree we're not sure yet -- and joining us now is Todd stars to talk a little bit more about that and the controversy.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- Violence where that there's this massive controversy under -- right now over these states official.
Christmas tree or holiday tree -- it's officially call.
So -- it this is really getting out of control.
And so what that the governor are.
Doesn't want to call it the Christmas tree or he does yeah that's right -- this dust up has been gone for quite some time earlier this year back in January a lawmakers and Rhode Island.
Who voted -- passed a resolution and it's really symbolic resolution.
Designating the State's holiday tree as a Christmas tree.
And this resolution said you couldn't called -- holiday tree can't call it any other kind of -- it's a Christmas tree.
Well the governor just yesterday announced that he was defying the wishes of the lawmakers and said in celebration of the states of religious tolerance and diversity.
There were going to call it.
A holiday tree.
So as you can imagine this is caused quite a dust up over there and no one of the lawmakers called me yesterday Doreen cost up.
And she's the person who introduced the resolution initially and she's decided to to launch an opposition tree.
And that's going to be corrected.
At the State Capitol at her office.
The same day as the official lighting of the holiday trees and our allies are going to be as big -- think the the official -- is seventeen feet tall.
But -- told me she is a small sports car -- the trees going to have to put on the roof or vehicle to get into the Statehouse there's probably going to be like a Charlie Brown kind of but her.
Cartel countries still in the governor -- Has the authority.
To overstep the law makers and it officially call it a holiday tree and I think theories and he does is because this was a symbolic resolution doesn't have any sort of legal -- -- legal standing.
But but you know this has been the ongoing war on Christmas where these lawmakers are deciding to -- to redefine the holiday me and my question -- what what.
