CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — Orange, red and yellow would be New Hampshire’s official colors under a bill coming to the House for a vote.

The House is scheduled to vote this week on the proposal to make the three colors the state’s official colors. A fourth grade class at Freedom Elementary School lobbied for the bill to highlight New Hampshire’s colorful fall foliage.

Two years ago, the House killed a bill to make purple the state’s official color.

The House voted last month to pass a bill promoted by a group of Derry fourth graders to make the white potato the official vegetable. The Senate next considers that bill.
