- A bill would prevent University of Wisconsin employees from working part-time at Planned Parenthood.
The Republican-backed measure is due for a public hearing before the state Senate's health committee.
The measure would prohibit UW employees from performing abortions or providing training at facilities where abortions are performed.
Hospitals would be an exception.
The bill targets an arrangement between Planned Parenthood and the UW.
Some faculty members work part-time at the organization's Madison clinic.
The arrangement has been in place since 2008.
The UW says fewer than 10 faculty members provide services at Planned Parenthood.
