Gov. Chris Sununu on Wednesday morning signed a bill inspired by a Rochester teen to mandate all New Hampshire middle and high schools provide free feminine hygiene products in dispensers in their female and gender neutral bathrooms.

Caroline Dillon, the Spaulding High School Class of 2019 graduate who helped write Senate Bill 142, applauded the governor’s decision. She said the bill will go a long way toward ending period poverty and improving students’ self confidence.
