The House Anticipates Voting on the Partial-Birth Abortion Bill Today

September 15, 1999
By: Farrah Fite
State Capital Bureau

As the House and Senate prepare to convene for the anticipated veto session, Congressmen are voicing their high hopes in getting things accomplished. Farrah Fite has the story from Jefferson City.

The heated controversy continued this morning as supporters of pro-choice and pro-life held rallies on opposite sides of the capitol. Congressman who represented both sides of the issue shared their expectations with the hundreds of people who showed up to express their beliefs.

Representative Bill Luetkenhaus is scheduled to introduce House debate for an override to Governor Carnahan's veto of his bill that bans partial-birth abortion.

Actuality:PREVOTE

OutCue: "AS FAR AS A VOTE"
Contents: LUETKENHAUS SAYS THAT EITHER THE LEADERSHIP OR HE WILL MAKE A MOTION TO STOP DEBATE AND VOTE ON THE BILL IN THE HOUSE TODAY.

If the planned vote on partial-birth abortion takes place in the House today and passes, the Senate could get to the bill as early as tomorrow deciding whether or not to overturn Carnahan's veto.
