Samantha Wooten and her mother Allison were beaming from the balcony of the state Senate chamber on Thursday, as all 24 senators turned in their direction and applauded Samantha’s three-year effort to improve protections for public-sector employees in New Hampshire.

The applause came after unanimous passage of a bill that expands the authority of the state Department of Labor to investigate workplace accidents that kill or seriously injure state, county or municipal employees, who don’t enjoy the OSHA protections that exist in the private sector.
