Minnesota CPC Appropriation Bill (SF 1462)
This law was last updated on Feb 25, 2019
SF 1462 would modify the eligibility requirements for the state’s positive abortion alternatives grant program.
The bill would modify the eligibility requirements so an organization would need to have had an alternatives to abortion program in existence for at least two years prior to the date the agency or organization submits an application to the commissioner for a grant.
The bill would appropriate $336,000 in fiscal year 2020 and $336,000 in fiscal year 2021 from the general fund to the commissioner of health for the positive abortion alternatives grants.
CPCs have come under increased scrutiny over the last several years, as investigations have revealed that centers across the country have provided inaccurate information and neglected to follow proper medical protocols. (Source.)
