  • Why reconciliation can and should be used to defund Planned Parenthood

    by David Christensen

    October 27, 2015: Efforts to defund Planned Parenthood Federation of American (PPFA) on the end of the fiscal year 2015 Continuing Resolution have been blocked in the Senate due to the 60-vote cloture threshold, but we believe an effort to defund a significant portion of PPFA's government revenue is possible on the budget reconciliation bill which requires only 51 votes. We believe such a provision is consistent with the Byrd Rule, which restricts "extraneous" provisions in reconciliation bills.
