On the Recap, we cover all the top stories from the Granite State.

This week, state Rep. Ken Weyler resigned from his position as chairman of the House Finance Committee after sharing a report with House colleagues that contained COVID-19 conspiracy theories. Gov. Sununu and Democrats have been calling for Weyler to resign.

School boards across the state are receiving petitions to hold special meetings to revisit mask requirements.

And there's been an increase in incidents of anger and harassment at public meetings throughout the state, especially where COVID-19-related policies are discussed.

Guests:

  • Josh Rogers, NHPR's senior political reporter
  • Ethan DeWitt, New Hampshire Bulletin's education reporter
