Senate Democrats celebrated while Gov. Chris Sununu neither signed nor vetoed a new law creating a program to encourage new graduates to stay and take their first post-graduate jobs in New Hampshire.

The New Hampshire College Graduate Retention Incentive Partnership (NH GRIP) would invite employers to offer a $1,000-a-year bonus or student debt payment for each of the first four years the new graduate holds a job in New Hampshire with the firm.

In exchange, the company would get free job postings on the state’s Department of Business and Economic Affairs website and the 22 member schools in the New Hampshire College & University Council would agree to market these firms and their vacant jobs.
