NH Lawmakers to Vote on Ski Pass Bill

Lawmakers in New Hampshire are set to determine the fate of a bill that would grant themselves free ski passes.

WMUR-TV reports that the Legislative Administration Committee is leaning towards a decision to halt a bill that would provide lawmakers with ski passes to the Cannon Mountain ski area.

For adults, a one-day pass at Cannon runs $70.

Supporters of the bill say the free-pass for lawmakers would promote New Hampshire culture, parks, and business. Opponents are arguing that enough use of a free pass would eclipse lawmakers’ own salary.

New Hampshire legislators only make $200 per two-year term.
