STATE OF NEW HAMPSHIRE

 

In the Year of Our Lord Two Thousand Nineteen

 

A RESOLUTION condemning the use of government shutdowns.

 

Whereas, all members of the New Hampshire house of representatives take an oath of office requiring them to preserve, protect, and defend the United States Constitution, and

Whereas, Part I, Article 38 of the New Hampshire constitution provides, "A frequent recurrence to the fundamental principles of the constitution, and a constant adherence to justice, moderation, temperance, industry, frugality, and all the social virtues, are indispensably necessary to preserve the blessings of liberty and good government; the people ought, therefore, to have a particular regard to all those principles in the choice of their officers and representatives, and they have a right to require of their lawgivers and magistrates, an exact and constant observance of them, in the formation and execution of the laws necessary for the good administration of government"; and

Whereas, federally elected officials swear to preserve, protect, and defend the United States Constitution and take care that the laws are faithfully executed; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives:

That the New Hampshire house of representatives, in defense of the United States Constitution, condemns and rejects the use of government shutdowns against blameless federal employees to the detriment of New Hampshire residents and the economy, which requires all essential federal services to function for the safety and protection of all people; and

That the New Hampshire house of representatives calls upon Congress to pass legislation regarding the use of continuing resolutions during the budget negotiation process to avoid all future government shutdowns; and

That the clerk of the house of representatives immediately forward a signed copy of this resolution to each member of the New Hampshire congressional delegation for their consideration and response.
