Video slots will probably not be legalized in New Hampshire this year. The proposal is not on a list of budget topics to be hashed out between New Hampshire House Speaker Terie Norelli and state Senate President Sylvia Larsen.

The state stands to lose $68.5 million if Massachusetts approves its gambling plan and New Hampshire does not, according to the commission.
