Republican lawmakers passed two bills in the House that would increase restrictions on abortions in Minnesota. The bills would require abortion facilities to obtain permits from the state's health department and would ban the use of state funds for abortions. Both passed largely along party lines. The Senate is planning to take up the permitting bill next week. Democratic Gov. Mark Dayton vetoed a similar regulation bill in 2012.
