We find out what New Hampshire state lawmakers hope to accomplish this year.  Many bills from last year have been revived, concerning guns, energy, transportation, health care and more.   Last week, for instance, House Democrats voted again to establish and gradually increase the state's minimum wage -- an effort vetoed last year by Gov. Sununu.  We'll explore how this debate -- and many others -- might play out this year.
