Idaho House Approves Resolution Opposing Federal Contraceptive Coverage Rules

March 27, 2012 — The Idaho House on Friday approved a nonbinding resolution urging President Obama and Congress to invalidate the federal contraceptive coverage rules, the AP/Idaho Press-Tribune reports.

State Rep. Carlos Bilbao (R), who pushed the resolution, said the rules infringe on moral and religious freedom (AP/Idaho Press-Tribune, 3/24).

The measure previously cleared the state Senate and now goes to the governor for consideration, according to KBSX/NPR (Ki, KBSX/NPR, 3/23).
