CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — A state Senate committee has recommended passage of a gas tax increase in New Hampshire.

The Senate Ways and Means Committee voted 4-1 Tuesday in favor of the increase.

The 18 cent tax would rise about 4 cents per gallon in July under the bill. It has not been increased since 1991 and is the lowest in New England. That increase is projected to raise $32 million annually for road improvements and the Department of Transportation.

The Senate is scheduled to vote on the bill March 13.

Gov. Maggie Hassan has said if a consensus is reached on a tax increase, she will sign it.
