Issue Position: Family Planning and Reproductive Rights

Issue Position

Location: Unknown

The current "war on women' that seems to be unfolding nationally highlights the importance of these reproductive and family planning issues at home. This past session, I fought hard to retain funding in our state budget for family planning services. My colleagues and I were successful in passing a final budget that didn't make any further cuts to these critical services. I was also a cosponsor and advocate of the Reproductive Parity Act, which would have ensured that insurance plans offering maternity care also provide reproductive health, contraception, and abortion coverage. Though the Act was a victim of the Republican takeover in the Senate, I am committed to continuing the fight for abortion coverage and making sure that the bill is passed next session.
