SC Senate continues SC DHHS funding of Planned Parenthood for now; adopts still ineffective revised version of ineffective Proviso 33.25, without adopting Governor’s effective Proviso 33.24

Note: This Report initially sent out by text on April 22-23; the SC Senate gave Third Reading approval to SC State Budget for FY 2019-2010 on April 18; H4000 sent back to SC House

As previously reported and explained, PLANNED PARENTHOOD funding was present in Section 33 (DHHS) of Senate Finance Comm Report, because of ineffective Proviso 33.25, which did NOT ban Planned Parenthood funding now, but only “once the federal (court) injunction is lifted.” That is version of State Budget which SC Senate took up for debate April 17:

SC House/SC Senate Finance Comm ineffective Planned Parenthood defunding Proviso 33.25:
(scroll down to Section 33 DHHS):

Part 1B (Provisos)
Section 33
Proviso 33.25
(DHHS: Family Planning Funds)

On April 18, the SC Senate could have adopted Governor McMaster’s effective Planned Parenthood defunding Proviso 33.24:

(page down to page 327):

However, instead, without adopting Governor McMaster’s effective Proviso 33.24, SC Senate adopted a revised version of ineffective Proviso 33.25 as proposed in Senator Cash’s Amdt No. 79, still ineffective insofar as stopping Planned Parenthood funding for now:

So the language adopted by SC Senate on April 18 of revised Proviso 33.25 contained in Section 33 (DHHS) of State Budget STILL contains PLANNED PARENTHOOD FUNDING for now.

As reported previously (see below), on April 17, the SC Senate tabled Senator Cash’s Amdt to budget (No. 22) to stop funding certain “abortions” in State Health Insurance Plan, by vote of 24 Ayes – 21 Nays (with Gregory, Leatherman, Massey,  Rankin, and Senn joining all 19 Dem’s to table), and so the funding for these certain “abortions” REMAINED IN THE BUDGET (within Section 108).

(H.4000) was reported out of Senate Finance Comm to full Senate on April 10 by Chairman, Senator Hugh Leatherman, with PLANNED PARENTHOOD funding STILL present in Section 33 (DHHS) of Senate Finance Comm Report, because of ineffective Proviso 33.25, which does NOT ban Planned Parenthood funding now, but only “once the federal (court) injunction is lifted”.
