Once a bill passes (OTP: Ought to Pass), the full body of its originating legislative body it crosses over to the other legislative body to begin the process again. The bill is introduced, assigned to a committee, and holds a public hearing again. You may be thinking that we haven’t reached crossover yet. Just to clarify, a bill can crossover before the deadline and begin the process in the next legislative body.
The deadline this year for crossover is April 6th. The NH House is scheduled for a full session on April 6th starting at 9 am. You can view this NH House full session on YouTube.
