John Boehner

House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) would not say today whether the Republican-majority House will allow federal funding of Planned Parenthood in fiscal 2016, which starts on Oct. 1.

During his Capitol Hill press conference on Thursday, asked Boehner: “By September 30, the House needs to pass a bill to fund HHS for fiscal year 2016. Will that law–whether it’s a stand-alone appropriations or a CR–fund Planned Parenthood?”

Boehner said: “Listen, the Planned Parenthood issue is under review of two of our committees.”
