Rules panel to mark up Planned Parenthood, healthcare defunding bills Tuesday

Considering the rule for H.R. 1473, the FY 2011 spending bill, may not prove controversial since that bill is the product of last week's compromise between the two parties on how to fund the rest of the fiscal year.

But the two healthcare resolutions are likely to draw fire from Democrats on the Rules Committee, even though a vote to defund Planned Parenthood was part of last week's agreement.

H.Con.Res. 35 would amend the FY 2011 spending bill to prevent funding of last year's healthcare law, and H.Con.Res. 36 would prevent funding in the bill from going to Planned Parenthood.

Rules on Tuesday is also looking to approve a rule for considering H.R. 1217, which would repeal a public health program under the healthcare law that so far has been allocated $1.25 billion.

On Wednesday, Rules will hold another "emergency" meeting to write a rule for H.Con.Res. 34, the House Republican budget resolution for FY 2012.
