From the office of Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton:

“Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-DC) said she is very pleased that the House today passed her amendment to the fiscal year 2022 Legislative Branch Appropriations bill to prohibit the U.S. Capitol Police from enforcing the prohibition on scooters at the Capitol complex. The House subsequently passed the bill. The report accompanying the bill also contains a Norton provision directing the Capitol Police not to enforce the prohibition on sledding at the Capitol complex.

“Electric scooters are a safe, innovative mode of transportation that allow people to travel quickly without the congestion or the air pollution associated with cars,” Norton said. “The positive benefits and promise of electric scooters warrant treating them like motorized bicycles, mopeds, and the other low-speed vehicles that are already permitted at the Capitol complex.

“The west side of the Capitol is well known as perhaps the best place for sledding in D.C.’s high-density urban environment with few other hills. It’s a pure childhood thrill that we should allow the residents of our nation’s capital.”
