Dear Forms Committee: Is there a difference between State and Federal Holidays?

Yes, the state of Oregon has not adopted all federal holidays. A list of state holidays can be found in ORS 187.010, and a list of federal holidays can be found here. You’ll notice the difference between these two lists (at the time this is published) is Columbus Day, which is recognized as a federal holiday, but not a state holiday. Other state-legal holidays that can change anytime are:

(1) Every day appointed by the Governor as a holiday.

(2) Every day appointed by the President of the United States as a day of mourning, rejoicing, or other special observance only when the Governor also appoints that day as a holiday.
