New Hampshire's Republican House leadership is looking to stall legislation that adds protections for transgender people over fears that it would let men use women's bathrooms.

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.
