Nullification of Obama pro-abortion Title X rule

House Roll Call No. 99
115th Congress, 1st Session

Passed: 230-188 (see complete tally)
Title X is a major federal "family planning" program.  In 2016, the Obama Administration issued a regulation to prevent states from directing funds from Title X away from providers deemed suitable, such as Planned Parenthood.  Under a law called the Congressional Review Act, Congress has the ability to nullify such agency regulations under certain circumstance.  H.J.Res. 43, sponsored by Rep. Diane Black (R-Tn.), employs Congressional Review Act authority to nullify the Obama Title X regulation, and thereby restore the previous authority of states to direct Title X funds to providers that they deem suitable. National Right to Life supports H.J. Res. 43.  The resolution passed the House 230-188, and was sent to the U.S. Senate for further action.  The resolution was supported by 228 Republicans and two Democrats.  It was opposed by two Republicans and 186 Democrats.  February 16, 2017, House roll call no. 99.
