Lawmakers are receiving a series of briefings on New Hampshire's labor market, economy and demographic challenges.

Economists and other experts are making presentations Monday to House and Senate lawmakers who sit on key committees that determine how money is raised and spent in New Hampshire. The briefings are open to the public and will be live streamed on the state's website.

Presenters include officials from New Hampshire's employment security department, the University of New Hampshire, the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston, the community college system and the New Hampshire Center for Public Policy Studies.

Likely topics include New Hampshire's aging population and comparisons of the state's economy to the rest of New England and the nation.
