A bid to shift the Bermuda Day holiday to the final Friday of May will go before MPs for debate today.

Grant Gibbons, the Shadow Minister of Economic Development, is scheduled to bring the report on the impact of the 35th Americaís Cup by professional services firm PwC to the House.

Walton Brown, the Minister of Home Affairs, is to update legislators on the City of Hamiltonís waterfront development proposal.

Kim Wilson, Minister of Health, will discuss plans to enhance standards at residential care facilities and nursing homes, along with child care standards.

And Wayne Caines, the Minister of National Security, will update MPs on gang violence reduction.

But controversial plans to change casino gaming legislation, tabled last week and designed to give government more control over the Gaming Commission, will have to wait at least another week before they are considered by the House.
