Should Lincoln's Birthday be taken away from state employees?

Should Lincoln's birthday be taken away from state employees? The question has come up in the Legislature.

I think it's fair to say that everyone needs to put something in the center of the table these days. Lincoln's birthday can be marked in a lot of ways, giving state employees the day off with pay does not seem appropriate to me.

The day should be merged and the total number of state holidays cut for employees as a cost-saving measure.
