CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - The month of June is all about compromise in the New Hampshire Legislature, as House and Senate lawmakers come together to work out their differences on key pieces of legislation.

The negotiations begin this week, when lawmakers form committees to hash out details on bills both chambers want but can’t quite agree on. Aside from the state budget, lawmakers will wrangle over fetal homicide laws, restrictions on the use of welfare benefits and a host of other issues.

Negotiating teams are made up of three senators and four House members.

Once the negotiations are complete, both the House and Senate will need to approve the final bills before sending them to Gov. Maggie Hassan. Hassan can sign or veto bills or let them pass into law without her signature.
