Capital Hill Watch Alert

Providing for congressional disapproval under chapter 8 of title 5, United States Code, of the final rule submitted by Secretary of Health and Human Services relating to compliance with title X requirements by project recipients in selecting subrecipients (H.J.Res.43)

The House of Representatives is expected to vote on Providing for congressional disapproval under chapter 8 of title 5, United States Code, of the final rule submitted by Secretary of Health and Human Services relating to compliance with title X requirements by project recipients in selecting subrecipients (H.J.Res.43; Text of Legislation) on Thursday, February 16, 2017.  On Wednesday, January 18, 2017, literally two days before the end of his Presidency, President Barack Obama's Department of Health and Human Services issued regulation blocking states from defunding Planned Parenthood from federal Title X family planning funds.   Several states in recent years receiving Title X family planning grants have opted to direct those funds to county health departments, community health centers, or other types of providers, in preference to organizations engaged in objectionable activities, such as Planned Parenthood that has been involved in fetal organ trafficking and is a mega-marker of abortion.   This resolution would use the Congressional Review Act to nullify Department of Health and Human Services' last minute rule designed to prevent states from redirecting Title X funds away from unsuitable organizations such as Planned A Parenthood.
