On November 2, 1983, President Ronald Reagan signed a bill, proposed by Representative Katie Hall of Indiana, to create a federal holiday honoring
Martin Luther King JR. The bill had passed the House of Representatives
by a count of 338 to 90, a veto-proof margin. The holiday was observed for
the first time on January 20, 1986.
