House and Senate negotiators are taking up legislation needed to implement a settlement with almost all NH’s hospitals over Medicaid rates and a tax on hospital revenues that two judges ruled unconstitutional. Twenty-five of the state’s 26 hospitals agreed to the deal. St. Joseph Hospital in Nashua, which has sued over the tax, is the only hospital that didn’t join the agreement.

House and Senate negotiators have reached agreement on a bill that would require courts to terminate the parental rights of rapists when petitions are filed by women who give birth after being sexually assaulted. The bill would apply only to men convicted of sexual assault or believed to have sexually assaulted the woman.
