The House has spoken on expanded gambling…voting “no” on a casino bill that was a huge priority for the Senate and the Governor.  Meanwhile, Senators crunched their budget numbers, and debated the House’s proposal to raise taxes on gasoline and cigarettes.  And a University of New Hampshire logo re-design…has some UNH students upset.
