New Hampshire lawmakers will tackle an array of issues this week, from barring firearms at polling places to establishing a state minimum wage.
Among the bills in committee this week is a proposal to set the state minimum wage at $12 an hour by 2020. Similar measures have been proposed in the past but have all fallen flat with Republican majorities in both chambers.
Another bill looks to create a new government position that would be charged with advocating for the state’s business community.
There’s also a measure to legalize the video lottery game Keno, which has cleared the House but not the Senate in recent years.
There are several bills involving election law, including a ban on firearms at polling places, and changes to the process of voter registration.
