Arizona Bill Banning State Employee Contributions to Abortion Providers (SB 1485)
This law was last updated on Jun 28, 2016
SB 1485 would prohibit abortion providers from receiving donations from state employees via payroll deductions.
The bill states:
“There shall be no payroll salary deductions from the compensation of state officers or employees for contributions made to a charitable organization that performs a nonfederally qualified abortion or maintains or operates a facility where a nonfederally qualified abortion is performed for the provision of family planning services.”
Arizona state law defines a nonfederally qualified abortion as “an abortion that does not meet the requirements for federal reimbursement under title XIX of the social security act,” i.e. nontherapeutic abortions.
Approved by Gov. Ducey (R) on March 30, 2016.
