The Consolidated Appropriations Bill, which funded a major portion of the federal government was signed into law in 2004.
Sec. 111. (b) Each educational institution that receives Federal funds for a fiscal year shall hold an educational program on the United States Constitution on September 17 of such year for the students served by The educational institution.
The law also provided that the designation of September 17 be changed from Citizenship Day to "Constitution Day and Citizenship Day." In addition, the Congress by Joint Resolution designated September 17 as "Constitution Day" and the week beginning September 17 and ending September 23 of each year as "Constitution Week."
