SALEM, Ore. (AP) - An Oregon state House committee plans to hold a hearing about Planned Parenthood.

House Republicans said Friday that the Democratic committee chair had agreed to hold the hearing later this month.

Nineteen of the 25 House Republicans requested the hearing last month following the release of secretly recorded videos of Planned Parenthood officials.

The House Health Care Committee chairman, Democratic Rep. Mitch Greenlick of Portland, says he’s a strong supporter of Planned Parenthood and has no concerns about the organization’s practices.

The hearing is scheduled for Sept. 28, when lawmakers will be in Salem for the quarterly legislative days.
