HOUSE REPUBLICANS VOTE TO MAKE NEW HAMPSHIRE LESS SAFE FOR PEACEFUL PROTESTORS


CONCORD, NEW HAMPSHIRE – Today, the House Republicans voted to block House Bill 564, legislation that would have put uniform standards in place for use of rubber bullets and tear gas on peaceful protestors. Following the vote Representative Casey Conley (D-Dover), released the following statement:


“This bill would have established uniform statewide standards around law enforcement's use of certain non-deadly weapons. These weapons, which were used against peaceful Black Lives Matter protesters around the country last summer, are less lethal than firearms but are still deadly. By killing this bill, the House missed an opportunity to place safeguards around the use of these weapons against New Hampshire residents.”
