Full Bill Text

SB 389 would prohibit a governmental entity from entering into a taxpayer resource transaction with an abortion provider or an affiliate of an abortion provider.

The bill defines taxpayer resource transaction to mean:

[…]a sale, purchase, lease, donation of money, goods, services, or real property, or any other transaction between a governmental entity and a private entity that provides to the private entity something of value derived directly or indirectly from state or local tax revenue, regardless of whether the governmental entity receives something of value in return.

The bill would grant the attorney general power to bring an action in the name of the state to enjoin a violation of this provision.
