A voter-initiated law that requires women to purchase a separate rider to have insurance coverage for abortion has been approved by both the Michigan House and Senate.

Law will go into effect 90 days after the Legislature adjourns

If lawmakers don't act on proposed law it would go on 2014 statewide ballot

Legislature has 40 days to vote on the bill, otherwise it will go on statewide ballot
