State Senate passes abortion clinic buffer zone bill

Heeding a call from the governor to act quickly, state senators passed a bill Wednesday that would set new rules for protesting at reproductive health clinics, despite antiabortion activists’ repeated urging that they reconsider.

The Senate passage came just two hours after a committee voted to move the legislation to the full chamber. It will now go to the House for further consideration.
