The New Hampshire House passed several bills on Wednesday designed to help school districts throughout the state deal with financial shortfalls that have many closing schools, laying off staff and cutting back on services.
The bills will still have to be reviewed by the House Finance Committee and returned to the House for a second vote before moving along the legislative process to the Senate.
Taken together, they signal growing sympathy on both sides of the aisle for the fiscal woes of school districts, particularly those in communities with low property values.
