  • Makes FY 2017 supplemental appropriation of $7,453,000 to DOH for family planning services.*
In Committee
Crossed Over
2016-2017 Regular Session
This bill supplements the Fiscal Year 2016 Annual Appropriations Act in providing $7,453,000 from the General Fund for Family Planning Services grants, through the Department of Health. Appropriations for these grants were eliminated in Fiscal Year 2011, and have not been reinstated since that time. The elimination of this funding resulted in both the closing of centers that provide family planning services and a reduction in the availability of such services, as the remaining sources of federal and private funding for the family planning centers were insufficient to maintain existing services. This bill would restore State funding for family planning centers to previous levels, thereby increasing the availability of family planning services. The bill would also improve family planning centers' abilities to compete for additional federal Title X family planning grants, which fund no less than 90 percent of grant recipients' approved project costs and require a non-federal match of no more than 10 percent. The bill specifies that the funding may not be used for abortion procedures.
