Both Democratic and Republican leaders in the New Hampshire Legislature say they want to protect and build upon the state’s economic success. But their priorities for the upcoming session show sharp differences in how to achieve those goals.
Democrats hold majorities in both the House and Senate, but as they found out last year, Republican Gov. Chris Sununu’s fondness for vetoes means any progress they make could be abruptly halted. Still, majority leaders in both chambers said they will continue to focus on key areas including enacting and raising the minimum wage, creating a paid family and medical leave program and expanding renewable energy.
