CONCORD - A state lawmaker from Goffstown said he has been receiving death threats.
This is an update to a story NH1 News broke last week in the case where lawmakers rejected a bill drafted by 4th-graders at a school in Hampton Falls.
Rep. John Burt, of Goffstown, said he is now getting death threats after the story went viral.
He said, in part, when he voted against the students' bill, "If we keep bringing more of these bills and bills and bills that really I feel we shouldn't have in front of us, we'll be picking a state hot dog next."
Meanwhile, Planned Parenthood responded to Rep. Warren Groen's comments in which he said the red-tailed hawk would make a better mascot for Planned Parenthood.
"Representative Groen's comments were extreme, out of touch and insulting to the people of New Hampshire, just like the legislative agenda he has worked to advance," Planned Parenthood said in a statement. "We find it affirming that his colleagues, including the Speaker of the House, and his constituents have repudiated his comments and distanced themselves from his actions."
