House Speaker Commends Legislation by Congressman Bass to Protect Dignity of Military Funerals
CONCORD – House Speaker William O'Brien today offered the following statement after the announcement that Congressman Charlie Bass will be introducing legislation to preserve the dignity of military funerals from disruption. New Hampshire has a similar law (RSA 644:2-b) that prohibits protesting at such funerals.
"The fallen sons and daughters of New Hampshire deserve the respect of a grateful state and nation. The men and women are heroes and we make sure that they get the appropriate dignity they have earned through their sacrifice. I commend Congressman Bass for moving forward on this bill to offer this protection nationally. I sincerely hope this legislation becomes law and we can ensure that all military funerals in the United States get the reverence they receive in the Granite State," said O'Brien.
