Norton to Hold Community Meeting with Residents on the Supreme Court’s Expanded Security Perimeter
WASHINGTON, D.C. –– Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-DC) announced that she will hold a virtual community meeting tomorrow, Wednesday, January 12, 2022, at 5:00 p.m. on the Supreme Court's new retractable vehicle barrier on a residential street, the 200 block of A Street NE. This meeting will be an opportunity for residents to share their concerns about the barrier and to find a solution that works for residents and the court. The court believes it has the legal authority to put the barrier on the street.
On October 20, 2021, Norton sent a letter to the court asking about its legal authority for the barrier, and the analysis the court conducted on safety threats to residents.
To attend, RSVP by emailing NortonEvents@mail.house.gov by 2:00 p.m. tomorrow, January 12th.
