CONCORD—Today, the New Hampshire House Education Committee voted 13-7 in support of SB 142, requiring feminine hygiene products in school restrooms.


Prime sponsor Senator Martha Hennessey (D-Hanover) released the following statement after the vote:


“Providing feminine hygiene products in public school restrooms is long overdue. Cost and stigma can cause a lack of access to these products for New Hampshire students, which negatively impacts their productivity and makes it harder to focus on classes. Feminine hygiene products are not a luxury, they are a basic health care necessity and cannot be foregone or substituted easily; I applaud today’s House committee vote in favor of ensuring convenient access in our public schools.”
