The 2023 New Hampshire legislative session begins next Wednesday and among the bills being sponsored and co-sponsored by the North Country’s newest state senator is one seeking money for a new aerial tramway at Cannon Mountain Ski Area. State Sen. Carrie Gendreau, R-Littleton, elected to her first term in November, has also signed on to legislation to continue the state grant program for regional economic development corporations and to a bill seeking to keep children safer by requiring that parents or guardians place kids two years of age or younger in a car seat that faces backward in the back seat of a vehicle. Language for the bill that would make an appropriation for the Cannon Mountain tramway is still being drafted, but Gendreau, whose Senate-1 district includes Franconia Notch State Park where the mountain and tram are located, said it will be similar to a bill put forth several years ago that then sought $25 million for a new modern tramway and system.
