Weekly N.H. News Roundup: April 30, 2021
We talk with reporters about how well the state is providing vaccine access to its vulnerable populations, and an investigation into the oversight of New Hampshire's correctional facilities, which have seen a number of outbreaks of COVID-19 in the last year. We also talk about energy legislation: from funding for broadband development to a proposed ban on discussions of "low carbon fuel standards programs."
