House passes measure to nullify last-minute gift from Obama to Planned Parenthood
The House of Representatives voted 230-188 to nullify an 11th hour Obama rule preventing states from redirecting Title X funds away from Planned Parenthood.
H. J. Res. 43, sponsored by Rep. Diane Black (R-TN), would use the Congressional Review Act to address Obama’s Department of Health and Human Services’ regulation designed to prevent states from redirecting Title X funds away from unsuitable organizations such as Planned Parenthood. The measure now goes to the Senate.
The last minute gift to Planned Parenthood took effect on January 18–literally with just two days left in Obama’s presidency.
