Full Bill Text

SF 2 would direct the department of human services to discontinue the Medicaid family planning network waiver effective July 1, 2017, and to instead establish a state family planning services program.

The bill would require the funds to be distributed in a manner that continues access to family planning services, but are not to be distributed to any entity that performs abortions or that maintains or operates a facility where abortions are performed.

The bill further specifies that the funds distributed may not be used for direct or indirect costs, including but not limited to administrative costs or expenses, overhead, employee salaries, rent, and telephone and other utility costs, related to providing abortions.
