House overrides veto on Rapert's abortion bill

Posted By on Wed, Mar 6, 2013 at 2:14 PM

CORRECTION: There is no emergency clause in the bill, so it doesn't become law immediately. And as commenter "Sound Policy" points out, it's possible that an injunction will stop it from becoming law before the inevitable legal challenge is resolved.

The House voted 56-33-1 to override Gov. Beebe's veto of SB 134. Sen. Jason Rapert's bill, which bans abortions before 12 weeks, would go into effect this summer (90 days after the date the legislature adjourns sine die)

Call the lawyers.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
