State House speaker Jase Bolger says his chamber will not approve any bill that would require women seeking an abortion to get trans-vaginal ultrasounds. The Marshall Republican’s announcement this afternoon followed national media attention to a bill introduced by another lawmaker that would require the exams. Similar proposals in other states have been very controversial.

A Republican state senator is sponsoring legislation that would only let health insurance companies pay for abortions if the individual purchases added coverage in advance.
