BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — The Republican-led North Dakota Legislature has passed legislation aimed at preventing North Dakota State University from funneling federal grant money to Planned Parenthood for sex education in the state.
The bill easily passed the Republican-led chamber, 35-11 on Monday.
The GOP-led House passed the measure 66-25 earlier this month.
It is unclear of GOP Doug Burgum will sign the bill.
The bill says any institution that enters into a contract with an abortion provider would have its operating budget cut by 2.5%. A school official signing the contract also would face a misdemeanor charge and a fine.
