CONCORD, NEW HAMPSHIRE – Yesterday, at the end of the legislative session, Rep. Katherine Rogers (D-Concord) attempted to give unanimous consent thanking her colleagues for their support during her now year-long battle with cancer and House Republican leadership revoked their consent for her to continue. In response, House Democratic Leader, Rep. Renny Cushing (D-Hampton) released the following statement:

For Republican leadership to deny Rep. Rogers the opportunity to thank her colleagues for their support throughout her heroic battle with advanced uterine cancer was a cruel and disrespectful way to end our first House session of 2022. Ironically, just one day before, the same people voted to deny Rep. Rogers, a severely immunocompromised legislator, the ability to participate in House sessions remotely with the patently absurd excuse that using 21st century technology encourages ‘more animosity and less collegiality.’ Clearly, the breakdown in decorum from House Republicans knows no venue restrictions, nor apparently, any bounds at all.”
