Lawmakers celebrate St. Patrick's Day with some lunch on the State House lawn in Concord.

It was a big week at the State House. New Hampshire lawmakers killed several high profile education bills. Many of those proposals revolved around allegations by some lawmakers and parents that public school teachers are indoctrinating students.

The New Hampshire House also voted on a number of reproductive health care and COVID-related bills. And criminal justice reform advocates were unhappy that representatives passed a bill that would make significant changes to the state’s bail reform law.
