CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — The Senate has voted to expand New Hampshire's tax on gas and diesel to alternative motor fuels.

Thursday's vote means the tax would apply to fuels such as compressed natural gas, liquefied natural gas and propane. It would not apply to electricity.

The tax would be levied at the same rate as the tax on gas and diesel and take effect Jan. 1.

The tax currently is 18 cents, but Gov. Maggie Hassan is expected to sign a bill raising the tax 4 cents to 22 cents on July 1.
