February 16, 2017
Press Release

WASHINGTON – Congressman Bruce Westerman (AR-04) issued the following statement upon passage of H.J. Res. 43, a bill providing for congressional disapproval under chapter 8 of title 5, United States Code, of the final rule submitted by Secretary of Health and Human Services relating to compliance with title X requirements by project recipients in selecting subrecipients:

“Grants issued using taxpayer dollars should not fund abortion providers, yet a midnight rule from the Obama Administration would have allowed such a travesty,” Westerman said. “Through the Congressional Review Act, the House spoke with a loud voice today, standing for life. As your member of Congress, I will continue to vote for Arkansas values.”
