The state House has given final approval to a bill that restricts funding, access to schools, and further regulates abortion providers.
House bill 2253 passed on a 92-31 vote Wednesday and now heads to the Senate. Republican leaders there are promising their chamber will now consider the bill quickly.
The Dodge City Family Planning Clinic is trying to withdraw from a lawsuit that challenges a state law that strips federal funds from family planning clinics in Wichita, Hays and Dodge City.
A filing with the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals Monday shows the parties have entered into an agreement to dismiss the Dodge City clinic from the suit. The clinic closed on December 31.
The move has no effect on the claims by Planned Parenthood of Kansas and Mid-Missouri.
