BISMARCK, N.D. – The Republican-led North Dakota Legislature has passed legislation to prevent North Dakota State University from funneling federal grant money to Planned Parenthood for sex education.
The bill easily passed 35-11 on Monday. The GOP-led House passed the measure 66-25 earlier this month. It is unclear if Gov. 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.
