CONCORD (AP) — Newly elected members of the New Hampshire House can begin filing legislation.

All 400 members of the House are allowed to file legislation beginning on Monday. Frequently more than 500 bills are filed each year. Each bill also gets a hearing a full vote on the floor.

Returning lawmakers have already begun submitting bills. Among them are annual proposals to raise the minimum wage and expanding gun background checks, both of which will fail under the Republican-controlled Legislature.

Others relate to the drug crisis, such as harsher penalties for drug dealers and beginning a needle exchange program.

The legislative session begins in January.
