Pluto is a Planet – If You’re From Illinois

The Discover Magazine blog is running a story about Pluto being officially declared a planet by the state legislature of Illinois. (Link to a PDF of the legislation is here)

RESOLVED, BY THE SENATE OF THE NINETY-SIXTH GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF THE STATE OF ILLINOIS, that as Pluto passes overhead through Illinois’ night skies, that it be reestablished with full planetary status, and that March 13, 2009 be declared “Pluto Day” in the State of Illinois in honor of the date its discovery was announced in 1930.

I wonder if they consider Eris to be a planet too, since it’s also a trans-Neptunian object that is *larger* than Pluto.
