CONCORD, NEW HAMPSHIRE –Today, Speaker Packard announced the date of the next legislative session, March 10th, and a venue change to Representatives Hall. In response to the announcement, House Democratic Leader Rep. Renny Cushing (D-Hampton), released the following statement:
"Moving House sessions to Representatives Hall is a shortsighted decision that will put members at risk. In a press conference today, New Hampshire public health officials reiterated that layered prevention strategies are needed to reduce community Covid transmission. House Democrats continue to believe that remote access to House sessions is an essential, cost-effective way to navigate the current pandemic. Packing people into Representatives Hall like sardines with no mask or vaccination requirement or other prevention strategies is a disaster in the making."
