A bill introduced into the New Hampshire Senate could result in food being able to be served in cigar bars within the state.
The bill, SB 478, was introduced by six members of the legislature, led by Sen. Harold French, R-Franklin. He was joined by Sens. Sharon Carson, R-Londonderry; Melanie Levesque, D-Brookline; Jeb Bradley, R-Wolfeboro; and Jon Morgan, D-Brentwood. They were joined by Rep. Howard Pearl, R-Merrimack.
It would remove a prohibition on the service of food on the premises of a cigar shop holding an on-premises cigar, beverage and liquor license. Should it pass, it would go into effect 60 days later.
The bill has been referred to the Senate Commerce Committee.
