New Hampshire House unanimously passes resolution to show support for victims and heroes of Marathon bombings
CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - New Hampshire’s House has unanimously passed a resolution to show support for victims and heroes of the Boston Marathon bombings and disavowed negative comments by a Republican lawmaker.
The House resolution praises victims, especially Jeff Bauman, whose father and stepmother live in Concord. Bauman lost both legs and suffered hearing damage as a result of the bombings.
Without naming her, the resolution disavows “unfounded speculation” aimed at state Rep. Stella Tremblay of Auburn who said a federal ``black-ops’’ team was behind the bombings and one suspect was killed without having a chance to speak. She later said Bauman did not appear to be in pain or shock. Tremblay said she would have been screaming.
Tremblay was not in attendance at Wednesday’s House session.
