Just posted on the website of the Indianapolis Star:
Gov. Mitch Daniels will sign a bill that defunds Planned Parenthood and imposes some of the most stringent anti-abortion measures in the nation.
His decision to sign House Bill 1210 will fuel speculation that he will seek the Republican nomination for president. Daniels has said he will make a decision on his political future soon, now that the legislative session ends today.
In a statement, Daniels said he had supported the bill from the outset “and the recent addition of language guarding against the spending of tax dollars to support abortions creates no reason to alter my position....”
“Any organization affected by this provision can resume receiving taxpayer dollars immediately by ceasing or separating its operations that perform abortions.”
To those, including our own Bill McGurn, who have been wondering quite what Gov. Daniels meant when he suggested a "truce" on the social issues, a heartening sign.
I don't mean to put words into Bill's mouth, of course, just to entice him to post a comment.
