Jan. 27 - Senate Debates and Passes PRO Act 34-33


Opponents and proponents of the issue filled the halls outside the Senate Chamber to have their voices heard before Senate members took up the proposal known as the Protect Reproductive Options bill or PRO Act. After hours of debate and multiple efforts by Republican members to amend the measure the Senate passed the bill 34-33. PRO Act has been a top priority for Democrats and Minnesota became the first state to take legislative action to protect abortion and other reproductive health care in the nation.
