DRIVE-IN HOUSE SESSION FAILS TO REASONABLY ACCOMMODATE MEMBERS WITH DISABILITIES

Remote option would allow full participation and mitigate health risks


December 29 –Today, Democratic House members held a press conference (link to watch here) in response to the announcement of a drive-in legislative session on January 6th Deputy Democratic Leader Representative David Cote, (D-Nashua), released the following statement:

“This is the New Hampshire Republican Party saying that they are unable to do what the government has required individuals and businesses to do since the pandemic began. Over the past nine months, businesses throughout the state and most of New Hampshire’s state government have adapted to working remotely to protect public health. For some reason, House Republicans are unable or unwilling to adapt like the rest of society. These plans for a ‘drive-in’ session fail to account for Representatives who cannot drive or are otherwise unable to sit stationary in their car for hours on end. The solution to this problem is simple – meet online.”
