In a shortened week due to the observation of Rosh Hashanah, the House is scheduled to turn its attention to Planned Parenthood. With the Sept. 30 deadline approaching, and few legislative days to keep the government open, the House will vote on Rep. Diane Black's (R-Tenn.) bill to freeze federal funding for Planned Parenthood for one year while Congress conducts an investigation into the organization's activities.
A second bill slated for a House vote would add criminal penalties for violations of the 2002
Born Alive Infants Protection Act
, which offers legal protections to infants born alive after a failed abortion attempt.
The Senate is expected to take up the Iran resolution once again, which is not expected to get the 60 votes need to advance.
