House and Senate lawmakers have signed off on a Medicaid Enhancement Tax deal.
Lawmakers voted 278-72 in favor of the deal that settles a lawsuit with 25 New Hampshire hospitals.
The Senate later passed it on a voice vote, and it now heads to Governor Maggie Hassan’s desk.
Hassan and legislative leaders announced the settlement last week, with St. Joseph Hospital of Nashua the lone holdout.
Republican Representative David Hess of Hooksett says he may not be completely happy with the result, but the deal is better than nothing.
