Hoeven Helps Introduce Resolution to Stop Biden Administration Rule Providing Federal Funds to Abortion Providers

CRA Resolution Would Nullify Biden Administration’s Title X Rule

WASHINGTON – Senator John Hoeven today joined Senator Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) in introducing a joint resolution under the Congressional Review Act (CRA) to overturn the Biden administration’s Title X Family Planning Program final rule, which reversed the Trump administration’s 2019 ban on federal funding to entities that provide abortion referrals to pregnant mothers. The 2019 rule had no effect on Title X funding levels and simply redirected the funds to providers that do not perform or promote abortions.  

“We are committed to protecting the unborn and respecting the sanctity of life,” said Hoeven. “This legislation is part of this effort and would ensure that taxpayer dollars are not used for abortion.”   

In addition to Hoeven and Rubio, the resolution is cosponsored by Senators Jim Risch (R-Idaho), Mike Crapo (R-Idaho), Ted Cruz (R-Texas), Joni Ernst (R-Iowa), Tim Scott (R-S.C.), John Boozman (R-Ark.), John Thune (R-S.D.), Steve Daines (R-Mont.), Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.), John Barrasso (R-Wyo.), Mike Braun (R-Ind.), Josh Hawley (R-Mo.), Cynthia Lummis (R-Wyo.), Kevin Cramer (R-N.D.), Deb Fischer (R-Neb.), Rick Scott (R-Fla.), Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-Miss.), James Lankford (R-Okla.), Tom Cotton (R-Ark.), Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.), Bill Hagerty (R-Tenn.), John Kennedy (R-La.), John Cornyn (R-Texas), Roger Wicker (R-Miss.), Jerry Moran (R-Kan.), Tommy Tuberville (R-Ala.), Dan Sullivan (R-Alaska), Mike Lee (R-Utah) and Roger Marshall (R-Kan.), Thom Tillis (R-N.C.) and Bill Cassidy (R-La.).

The resolution is supported by the Susan B. Anthony List, National Right to Life, Family Research Council and Heritage Action.
