NH Senate

State senators heard three hours of testimony Tuesday from dozens in the New Hampshire forest products industry who support a plan to resurrect biomass energy subsidies.

The plan, proposed in an amendment on an unrelated bill, is a version of a law passed last year that's since stalled in a legal challenge before the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.

When the New Hampshire Senate returns to the State House Wednesday, it’s expected to take up a Republican bill held over from last session that could tighten voter eligibility requirements by changing the definition of residency.

Last year, we started asking the presidential candidates who stopped by NHPR's offices to deliver their best "elevator pitches" on the way into our studios. Now that we're heading into the final stretch of the election season, we're reviving this feature β€” this time, with the candidates for statewide office.
