Washington, D.C. – House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (CA-23) released the following statement on President Trump signing H.J. Res. 43 into law, a Congressional Review Act resolution overturning the Obama Administration’s Title X rule:

“With President Trump’s signature, today we overturned an Obama-era regulation that threatened innocent lives. The federal government should not use taxpayer money to support abortion providers or force states to do so either. Overturning this rule allows states to fully fund Title X programs without being forced to direct that money to abortion providers who may not even offer basic health services, like prenatal care. As a result, states can once again save lives and improve women’s health all at the same time.”

NOTE: This is the 12th CRA signed into law. The House has passed 15 CRAs this year and 13 have passed the Senate.
