CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - The New Hampshire Executive Council has voted 3-2 to fund a contract that will allow Planned Parenthood health centers in the state to continue to provide services like access to birth control and cancer screenings.

The contract was one family planning contracts on the council’s agenda Wednesday. The council approved $274,000 per year for Planned Parenthood for a two-year period effective retroactively, as of July 1.
