(INDIANAPOLIS) - A bill to increase regulations on abortion services in Indiana is moving forward after lawmakers added protections for physicians who partner with abortion providers to treat patients in case of complications.

A House committee voted 9-1 on Tuesday to advance the bill, which now would make the names of those partnering physicians confidential.

The bill would require paperwork documenting those partnerships to be provided to the state, a move supporters say would increase accountability and oversight of abortion providers.

The change is one of many that have watered down the bill this session. Previous versions of the bill would have increased building code requirements for clinics and annual inspections.

The bill now goes before the full House for deliberation.
