Health bill will go back to the House

Posted By on Thu, Mar 25, 2010 at 6:51 AM

The Senate has turned back nearly two dozen Republican amendments to health reconciliation legislation, but it now appears the legislation will have to go back to the House after all.

Republicans found a couple of relatively minor provisions that cannot be considered under the majority vote procedure. They'll be removed and the bill will have to go back to the House for another vote, where Democrats expect to have the votes necessary to complete action.

This developed during an extended session that didn't end until almost 3 a.m. this morning.
