The "Queen of Tejano Music's" birthday may become a state holiday.
House Bill 2492, filed on Tuesday by Rep. Ana-Maria Ramos, D-Richardson, would designate April 16 as Selena Quintanilla Pérez Day. The bill would make Selena one of only two people to have a state holiday honoring them, according MySA.
"April 16 is Selena Quintanilla Perez Day in memory of the contributions to Tejano music of Selena Quintanilla Perez, an award-winning singer and recording artist," Ramos said in the bill. "Selena Quintanilla Perez Day may be regularly observed by appropriate ceremonies and activities."

The bill must be approved by the applicable House Committee, the full House, the Senate and finally the governor to become law. If approved, the bill would go into effect on Sept. 1, 2019.
While the status of Ramos’ bill may still be unknown, Selena fans can take solace that she has already been recognized by Texas lawmakers. According to MySA, Gov. George W. Bush declared April 16 as "Selena Day” and said she represented "the essence of south Texas culture" shortly after her death in 1995.
