Senate caps off ambitious early session agenda by passing abortion restriction, “paycheck protection” bills

Senate caps off ambitious early session agenda by passing abortion restriction, “paycheck protection” bills

As the Senate recessed for its annual round of budget hearings Wednesday, it did so after passing two other controversial proposals – one that would restrict abortions in Pennsylvania by disallowing them after the 21st week and one labeled “paycheck protection” in that it would prohibit the automatic deduction of public employee union dues money that would be used for political purposes.
