The New Hampshire Senate on Wednesday killed a bill targeting soda straws and recycled a measure on town waste reduction goals to replace one that would have banned store plastic bags.

Senators said they found the straw bill, which would prohibit restaurants from providing plastic straws to customers unless specifically requested, unnecessary. They said people and businesses are already doing away with straws.
