New Hampshire lawmakers are considering decriminalizing sex work.

They're considering setting up a committee to take a look at the pros and cons of decriminalizing sex work, both for those buying and those selling. They would also look at the costs to the police and court systems, as well as the impact on human trafficking.

Gov. Chris Sununu, R-New Hampshire, issued a strong statement Tuesday about any potential legislation, saying, "There are those in the Legislature that want to explore legalizing prostitution. I am 100% against it, and would veto the bill if it reaches my desk."
