Lawmakers finish work on leftover bills

CONCORD — Although the New Hampshire House isn't in session, committees have been at work this summer and fall on more than 100 bills from this year's session that lawmakers felt needed more work. Topics include everything from breastfeeding to drones.
Every bill will come up for a new vote in January when the session begins. If passed, some of the bills would create major changes in criminal justice, public safety or other key areas of state government.
On criminal justice, for example, one bill aims to repeal mandatory minimum sentences for certain criminal offenses and another would require state police to wear body cameras. Another bill would prohibit law enforcement officers from using the devices to collect evidence, prompted in part by privacy concerns.
