House lawmakers will vote next week on a congressional map built around the Interstate 93 corridor

 House lawmakers will vote next week on a congressional map built around the Interstate 93 corridor despite opposition from Gov. Chris Sununu. The House Special Committee on Redistricting voted 8-7 on Wednesday to recommend a plan that creates a new, Republican-leaning 1st Congressional District by clumping together towns and cities along I-93 in the southern half of the state, with the 2nd District reaching up and around it on both sides. Sununu has promised to veto an earlier plan passed by both the House and Senate, and has indicated the new one falls short as well. Under the current map, the 1st District covers the eastern part of the state and some of the south, including Manchester. The 2nd District covers the western, northern and some southern communities, including Nashua.
