House Speaker Stephen Shurtleff has stripped state Rep. John Burt of his seat on the House Criminal Justice and Public Safety Committee.
The Goffstown Republican and gun rights advocate is now removed from the powerful committee that will hear as many as nine bills dealing with guns this coming session.
He is being removed because of a post on social media about Fish and Game Executive Director Glenn Normandeau, according to a copy of the letter obtained by InDepthNH.org.
The letter from Shurtleff to Burt cited his posting on social media about Normandeau, who after 12 years as the leader of the Fish and Game Department, is not being offered another term by the Fish and Game Commission.
