NH lawmakers kill new police funding, eminent domain bills

The Associated Press

CONCORD (AP) — Lawmakers are using the last day of voting to kill off major pieces of legislation related to natural gas pipelines and funding for police to fight the state's drug crisis.

The House and Senate are gathering in Concord to decide whether to send remaining legislation to Gov. Maggie Hassan's desk or to kill it.

One bill that died in the House would've provided $1.5 million for police departments to increase patrols in highly drug trafficked areas. It also would have required state retirees to pay premiums on their health care plans. Hassan is urging lawmakers to reconsider the police funding portion before the day's end.

Another thwarted bill would have given new protections to homeowners subject to eminent domain for pipeline projects.
