New Hampshire’s Senate has voted to leave intact the state’s centuries-old death penalty. Lawmakers voted 12-12 on Thursday and the tie means the measure will stay on the books. The Senate also voted in favor of banning handheld cell phone use while driving unless its handsfree. The bill also bans drivers under 18 from using any devices accept in the case of an emergency. The bill was sent back to the House with an amendment that would require the state to educate the public on the new law.
