Gov. McAuliffe Orders Review of Onerous Virginia TRAP Law

The Washington Post: Gov. McAuliffe calls for review of abortion clinic regulations in Virginia, by Laura Vozzella:

Gov. Terry McAuliffe moved to free Virginia’s abortion clinics from strict hospital-style building codes on Monday, loading up the state health board with abortion rights supporters and ordering it to review rules that clinic operators say threaten to put them out of business.

The Democratic governor is also looking for ways to soften or suspend the rules to keep clinics open during the health board’s review, which could take more than two years. The General Assembly approved the regulations in 2011; they are set to take effect as early as June. . . .
