Madison –  Wisconsin Family Action president Julaine Appling issued the following statement commending the Wisconsin Senate for passing two bills dealing with public funding of abortion providers such as Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin.  The Senate passed Assembly Bill 310 which redirects federal Title X funds away from organizations that provide abortions and to other qualified health centers in the state. The other bill, Senate Bill 238, stops organizations that provide abortions from overbilling the state for drugs they buy inexpensively through a Medicaid program and then dispense.  Both bills passed on 19-14 votes, with all Senate Republicans voting for the bills and all Senate Democrats voting against them.  Assembly Bill 310 passed in the Assembly last fall and will now go to the governor for signing.  Senate Bill 238 heads to the Assembly for a vote.
