The Democratically controlled New Hampshire House on Thursday passed its version of a state budget for 2020-21 that includes $164 million in new education aid, mostly for property-poor school districts, funded by a new tax on capital gains.

The plan also includes a family and medical leave insurance program that would be funded by 0.5 percent withholding from paychecks, while eliminating cuts in business taxes scheduled to take effect for tax years 2019 and 2021.
