The pending STATE shutdown

At the federal level the pending shutdown looks to be keying on federal funding of Planned Parenthood.

In Tennessee it could be the same thing.

In the senate health committee (that I am a member of) funding for health care clinics in Tennessee came up for review. I asked if any money was still going to abortion provider Planned Parenthood.

It is.

Nashville and Memphis still turn over money to the abortion provider.

I asked if we could do a budget amendment saying no funding shall go to any group or agency that provides abortion services. The committee went into a spin as arguments for and against started to fly. The committee decided to quit for the day, take a week off and see where we were next Wednesday.

I know where I will be.

I plan to offer the amendment again. If not there, then on the full senate floor.

More to come...
