In a 12-11 vote, the Senate Finance Committee passed Republican Sen. Orrin Hatch’s measure to restore $50 million a year in funding  for abstinence-only education programs. Full Story

Also passed was a measure by the Committee chairman, Democratic Sen. Max Baucus of Montana. Baucus’s measure, which passed 14-9, makes funding available for more comprehensive sex education.

Since both measures passed, it will be up to the House and Senate to decide.
