A pivotal vote in the House this week on expanded gambling as a super-committee advises the full house to vote “no”.  Also, how big is that budget hole?  Depends on who you ask: the State Senate says more than $160 million.  And, yes, it’s early, but there’s already a plethora of presidential polls for 2016.

At the Statehouse, debates continue over the budget and expanded gambling.  A May Day rally in Concord takes place, for immigrant and worker rights.  New Hampshire U.S. Senator Kelly Ayotte explains her votes on gun control.  And Granite Staters remember the Old Man of the Mountain ten years after he fell. We'll look at the top New Hampshire News Stories for the week of April 29th.
