Sen. Ballinger presents H.B. 1589 to the Arkansas Senate.

On Monday the Arkansas Senate passed H.B. 1589 by a vote of 29 to six. The bill previously passed the Arkansas House of Representatives.

This good bill by Rep. Harlan Breaux (R – Holiday Island) and Sen. Bob Ballinger (R – Ozark) prohibits government entities, including public schools, in Arkansas from engaging in transactions with abortion providers and affiliates of abortion providers.

H.B. 1589 is a good bill that will help ensure that Arkansas does not spend any taxpayer dollars subsidizing abortionists and their affiliates.

The bill now goes to the governor to become law.
