New Hampshire House and Senate negotiators have reached agreement on a bill that would boost pay for state workers, end litigation with New Hampshire's hospitals, fix decaying bridges and fatten the state's rainy day fund.
And top lawmakers are confident the bill will win passage next week.
The $102 million dollar package pays for what negotiators considered musts: the new state employees contract and the Medicaid settlement.
But it also spends on a few pet initiatives, like recovery friendly workplaces. Governor Sununu wanted that one.
