The forecast calls for a sled-worthy snowstorm to hit Washington, D.C. in the next 24 hours, likely the last opportunity for the children of D.C. to partake in a favorite childhood pastime, sledding, this winter. In recent weeks, those attempting to sled on the Capitol grounds have been brusquely asked to leave the premise.  

The Regulations currently read: 

AOC Sledding Regulation
No person shall coast or slide a sled within Capitol Grounds. Skiing With the exception of the use of cross-country skis or snowshoes as a means for transportation, no person shall ski on any area within Capitol Grounds. 

Please lift the sled ban and allow the children of D.C. (including those who are children at heart) to take advantage of the last bit of snow this winter.
