COLUMBUS, Ohio - An Ohio House committee is considering a measure that could send Planned Parenthood centers to the back of the line to receive public funds used for family planning services.
The Health and Aging Committee scheduled a possible vote Wednesday on the measure.
Opponents have said it would largely cut funding for Planned Parenthood. Anti-abortion groups have praised the idea.
A House finance committee stripped a similar plan from a budget bill earlier this year.

A popular president can help his party's candidates for Congress and governor candidates in mid-term elections. But Democrats increasingly worry they could suffer losses, much as they did in 2010, Obama's first mid-term elections.
Republicans and Democrats in Ohio's capital city are launching a joint effort to explore landing a national political convention for Columbus in 2016.
