Texas passes tough rules on reporting abortion complications

Now it is essentially one vote in the full Senate from heading to Gov. Greg Abbott for his signature, and that's likely to happen Saturday evening.

"It does not provide one ounce of property tax relief". Lawmakers will also have to sort through major differences between this measure and the Senate version of the bill, which sets the rollback rate at 4 percent. "It's not meant to, and anyone who suggests that it is giving you bad information", Bonnen said as he outlined the bill for the House.

The state Senate has already approved requiring property tax increases of at least 4 percent to trigger such elections so the issue will now go to conference committee.

Instead, people who want that coverage would have to purchase supplemental plans that may cost people extra and may be harder to find according to abortion rights advocacy groups.

"Half of the nation have adopted some measures and policies similar to this".

Democratic opponents called the rules unnecessary, noting that pulling wisdom teeth and many other, less politically charged procedures result in far more complications that abortion. The House Appropriations Committee gutted SB 19, which would give one-time $600 bonuses to teachers who have six to 10 years of experience and $1,000 bonus to teachers with at least 11 years of experience in September 2018.

South Korean Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha has hailed the achievements made during her first ASEAN Regional Forum. But his top diplomat is also laying out a narrow path for the North to return to negotiations.
