FILE - In this Jan. 21, 2014 file photo, Bashon Mann and his children sled down a hill on Capitol Hill in Washington as snow falls. It may have taken an act of Congress, but the children of Washington are finally welcome to go sledding on Capitol Hill. With a major blizzard bearing down on Washington, the U.S. Capitol Police on Thursday told the public that they won’t be enforcing, as in years past, a longstanding sledding ban. Existing law officially forbids sledding in order to protect the Capitol grounds, but lawmakers instructed the cops to chill out in legislation that cleared Congress last month.  (AP Photo/J.
