MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) - New Hampshire Gov. Maggie Hassan has signed into law a bill establishing a statewide drug court program.

The program will help those battling addiction access treatment and recovery services.

The bill establishes a statewide drug offender grant program, setting up the drug courts or alternative programs. It provides more than $2 million in matching state grants.

It also transfers $40 million to the state’s Rainy Day fund this year.

Hassan signed the bill Tuesday in Manchester.
