House Speaker Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., ripped House Democrats Friday after no one in the minority voted for the Parental Bill of Rights Act, which would give parents access to school curriculum and reading lists.
A new bill in California is aiming to ensure free condoms are available for high school students.
State Sen. Caroline Menjivar introduced Senate Bill 541 to the legislature last month with the aim of increasing youth access to contraceptives.
The bill will be brought before the Senate Education Committee next week.

Senate Bill 541 would require schools to offer condoms in at least two different locations and provide information on proper use without necessitating students to request them from an adult.
"What we're asking the schools to do is to provide condoms in two different locations throughout their campus, and not where a student will have to go to a teacher, an administrator to ask for them," said Menjivar.
Menjivar said she is "trying to remove the shame" of asking for contraceptives, saying the pressure of the situation often drives students to forgo condoms entirely.
