Rules postpones abortion bill markup

The House Rules Committee has postponed Thursday's planned markup of a rule for H.R. 3, the "No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act."

The committee has not announced when it might take up the bill. Approval of a rule Thursday was expected to lead to a vote as early as next week, but that schedule has likely been overtaken by the ongoing budget negotiations.
