Although Wednesday is technically (although not actually*) Washington's Birthday, today is President's Day.
It's a day we give a holiday to most government workers, banks, some parking meters and mail delivery. Congress gets the day off, despite the Separation of Powers.
The Washington Legislature does not take Presidents Day off. It has a full day of hearings on the schedule, and several groups are taking advantage of the three-day weekend to mount protests in and around the Capitol.

How many presidents were former legislators?
