Republicans propose cuts to family planning budget

Very good news:

WASHINGTON, D.C. – House Appropriations Chairman Hal Rogers today announced a partial list of 70 spending cuts that will be included in an upcoming Continuing Resolution (CR) bill. The CR legislation will fund the federal government for the seven months remaining in the fiscal year and prevent a government wide shut-down, while significantly reducing the massive increases in discretionary spending enacted in the last several years by a Democrat majority. A full list of program cuts will be released when the bill is formally introduced.

The total spending cuts in the CR will exceed $74 billion, including $58 billion in non-security discretionary spending reductions. (Source)

Among the list of spending cuts is $327 million for “Family Planning”. Details aren’t available yet so we don’t know what those cuts will include. Hopefully they’ll pull the plug on Planned Parenthood.

We’ll know more in the coming weeks. I’ll keep you posted.
