CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - The New Hampshire House is preparing for a busy day Wednesday, when lawmakers will take up workers’ compensation reform, voter residency requirements and more.

Efforts to reduce workers’ compensation costs fell short in the Senate, but a compromise effort being put forth in the House could gain traction. The voter residency bill would require a person to live in New Hampshire for 30 days prior to registering to vote.

Another bill before the House will allow private employers to grant preference to veterans in the hiring process.

The Senate, meanwhile, will vote on its $11.3 billion budget Thursday. This week marks the final session days for both chambers before committees of conference begin, when House and Senate lawmakers negotiate on bills they both want but passed with different details.
