CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - New Hampshire’s Legislature is taking a week off.

The House and Senate will not be holding hearings or meetings in session during the last week of February. They will return on March 3 to begin dealing with some of the session’s most contentious issues, including whether to legalize casino gambling, expand Medicaid and raise the tax on gas and diesel.

The Senate plans to vote March 6 on a plan to use federal Medicaid money to buy private insurance for an estimated 50,000 poor adults. If approved, the House hopes to hold a hearing as soon as the following week.

The Senate Ways and Means Committee plans to decide March 4 whether to recommend a gas tax increase. The Senate would likely vote on that bill on March 13.
