Statehood Trip Snowed Out
The New Hampshire legislature has canceled all business at the state capitol in Concord for tomorrow due to a looming snowstorm, which means the D.C. statehood delegation that was planning to testify in support of a bill calling for New Hampshire to put itself on record against the District's colonial status has had to postpone its trip.
All the more reason they should have sent someone earlier this week?
Here's the official press release from New Hampshire House Speaker William O'Brien about the weather, courtesy of New Hampshire Public Radio's Josh Rogers, who was set to cover the trip for Washington City Paper:
House Business Cancelled for Thursday, January 12 Due to Inclement Weather
House Speaker William O’Brien
“While we have not had too much bad weather this winter, the forecast for tomorrow indicates that we may have inclement conditions that could represent a threat to those coming to the State House. Obviously, the safety of our members, legislative staff and those coming to our hearings is too important to take the risk of what could be dangerous travel getting to Concord. Accordingly, we have canceled House hearings for Thursday.”
