Family planning group will try to bypass Perry, state for federal grant

A trade group for family planning wants to apply for a federal Title X grant and bypass the state to give the money back to clinics that lost funding last year.

The 2011 legislature cut about $73.6 million — two-thirds of funding — from family planning for the current biennium shuttering more than 100 clinics and putting more than 120,000 Texans in search of new providers.
