Senate narrowly passes bill to nullify 11th hour gift from Obama to Planned Parenthood

 Vice President casts tie-breaking votes

It was every bit as tight as expected. Earlier Thursday, in his role as President of the Senate, pro-life Vice President Mike Pence cast a tie-breaking vote which allowed action to proceed on H. J. Res. 43.

Thursday afternoon he cast the same tie-breaking vote on the measure itself which uses 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.

H. J. Res. 43 had previously passed the House 230-188.

H. J. Res. 43 now moves to President Trump for his signature.
