The "interesting take" is that the very site you link to say it was NOT "enshrined in law". such a bill was introduced into the state legistature but voted down.

I stand corrected if not by spellchecker then by HallsOfIvy. But it did get 67 to 0 vote in the legislature but was killed in the state Senate so I guess it was half a law.
