Cuccinelli certifies abortion facilities regulations

RICHMOND (September 26, 2012) – Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli’s office sent notice today to Dr. Karen Remley, Commissioner of the Virginia Department of Health, that it has certified that the Board of Health had the statutory authority under Virginia law to adopt the abortion facilities regulations it adopted at its September 14 meeting. The office also certified that the proposed regulations are constitutional and do not conflict with existing federal or state laws or regulations.

After executive branch review, if the governor approves the regulations, they will be published by registrar of regulations for a 60-day comment period, then they will return to the Board of Health for final consideration.
