THIS PAST June House Republican leadership took the unprecedented action of trying to shut down the legislative session. Republican leaders, trying to protect the governor from having to veto priorities of Granite Staters, refused to change the deadlines the House operates under.
The deadlines had to be changed due to the COVID-19 outbreak. But like a toddler trying to justify their actions, Republican leadership had different excuses for why they wanted to stop the people’s work. At first it was because they were not involved enough. The problem with that excuse was I personally spoke with members of Republican leadership multiple times a week and our committee chairs had emails showing them working with their Republican counterparts.
