BREAKING NEWS: Delegate Marshall's Budget Amendment Defunding Planned Parenthood Passes House FloorFeb 10, 2011
Delegate Bob Marshall's (R-13, Manassas) budget amendment defunding Planned Parenthood passed the House 57-39 within the last minute. The House is debating floor amendments to its proposed budget in a marathon session. In his floor speech, he cited the recent undercover video by LiveAction.org that showed a Planned Parenthood abortion center in Richmond in which an employee appeared willing to aid and abet illegal alien under age human sex trafficking. This legislative language now will be included in the House version of the budget that will be negotiated with the Senate in a conference committee to determine the final budget bill which both chambers ultimately must approve.
