H.J.Res. 43: 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

This was a vote to agree to H.J.Res. 43 in the House.

H.J.Res. 43 would disapprove and nullify the rule issued by the Department of Health and Human Services on December 19, 2016, relating to Title X family planning funds in which states would be blocked from restricting Title X family planning funds to abortion providers.

To rephrase, if it becomes law, H.J.Res. 43 would allow states to use Title X grants funds for only those entities that refrain from providing abortions.

The bill's sponsor names Planned Parenthood specifically as an entity that would be guaranteed the Title X funds regardless of the preferences of a given state unless the rule is nullified.
