Here's our look at the Trump administration and the rest of Washington:
- Military probes possible friendly fire in deaths of two U.S. service members in Afghanistan
- Trump signs executive order that could open California coast to drilling
- House okays one-week stopgap measure to avert shutdown
- GOP shutting out doctors, Democrats in effort to resuscitate healthcare overhaul
- Sanctuary cities get legal boost from conservative Supreme Court rulings
- Two American troops killed in Afghanistan near site where U.S. dropped mega bomb
Donald Trump signed a law Thursday that allows states to deny certain federal funding to Planned Parenthood.
The measure overturns a regulation finalized at the end of President Obama's administration that explicitly prevented states from denying federal Title X family planning funds to clinics, like Planned Parenthood, that also provide abortion services.
Under longstanding practices, federal funds could not be used for abortions, but they could go to abortion clinics that provided other healthcare services. As of 2014, roughly 3% of the services provided by Planned Parenthood were abortion-related.
Vice President Mike Pence was the tie-breaking vote for the bill in the Senate last month after Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Susan Collins of Maine broke from their Republican colleagues to oppose it.
The signing was done behind closed doors and without media present.
