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.

A pivotal vote in the House this week on expanded gambling as a super-committee advises the full house to vote “no”.  Also, how big is that budget hole?  Depends on who you ask: the State Senate says more than $160 million.  And, yes, it’s early, but there’s already a plethora of presidential polls for 2016.
