On August 16, WisconsinEye Senior Producer Steve Walters and WisPolitics.com Editor JR Ross discussed a Republican led bill to increase access to birth control. Assembly Bill 304 would permit pharmacists to prescribe certain contraceptives. "You have this odd dynamic of Republicans arguing for greater access to birth control...usually you see Democrats pushing that idea...," JR said. "These Republicans are pushing it because there is a want for greater access, especially in rural areas, to health care." Check out WisconsinEye's coverage on the recent Assembly Committee on Health public hearing addressing that bill.
