(January 22, 2015) - New Hampshire once had a long, bipartisan tradition of its elected officials holding public Town Hall meetings with their constituents. That custom went by the wayside over the past couple of years as Senator Shaheen, Governor Hassan, Congresswoman Kuster (NH-02), and former Congresswoman Shea-Porter (NH-01) refused to join Senator Ayotte in holding open forums.
(January 9, 2015) - The House of Representatives overwhelmingly approved the Keystone Pipeline this afternoon with a bipartisan vote of 266 - 153. Today's passage happened hours after the Nebraska Supreme Court ruled in favor of the proposed route. The decision by the court overturned a lower court's ruling challenging Keystone's path through Nebraska. The lower court said a 2012 law that allowed Nebraska Gov. Dave Heineman (R) to greenlight the route was against the state's constitution. By striking down the decision today, the Nebraska Supreme Court removed President Obama's core argument for threatening to veto legislation approving the project.
