An amendment to protect no-cost birth control coverage in Minnesota was offered to the supplemental budget bill. The legislation was in direct response to federal legislation attempting to eliminating guaranteed birth control coverage under the Affordable Care Act (ACA). This important amendment would protect no-cost birth control coverage in Minnesota and guarantee the basic right of people in Minnesota to control their own bodies, plan their families, and access the birth control method that is right for them, regardless of cost and free of political interference. The amendment failed on a 33 to 33 vote.
