House Republican Leader Richard Hinch (R-Merrimack) released the following statement in response to remarks delivered by House Democrat Majority Leader Douglas Ley (D-Jaffrey) during the unanimous consent portion of the House proceedings:

“I find it highly inappropriate that the House Majority Leader Douglas Ley took advantage of unanimous consent at the end of session to admonish and lecture the Republican caucus on decorum and behavior in and outside of the House. He should stick to dealing with his own fractured caucus and leave Republican affairs to Republican leadership to address. If he has concerns about the behavior about some individuals there are more professional ways to go about resolving them. The Speaker should have never let his Majority Leader take this unprofessional and disrespectful route.”
