March 21, 2014 - Week Two at the Capitol, Abortion Debate

Week Two at the Capitol (03:20) Topics discussed by lawmakers this week at the regular session included the annual budget for state tourism, possible funding cuts for Fort Polk, and debate on an abortion bill. Shauna Sanford has the latest from the State Capitol. SHARE

Abortion Debate (11:17) We take a closer look at HB 388 sponsored by Rep. Katrina Jackson (D-Monroe). “The Unsafe Abortion Protection Act” would require physicians who perform abortions to have active admitting privileges to a hospital that provide OB/GYN services within 30 miles. Opponents say the bill is unnecessary. SHARE
