Republicans Force New Vote on Health Care Reform

Washington, D.C.–(ENEWSPF)–March 25, 2010.  In a marathon Senate session that finally adjourned at 2:45 a.m. (EST) today, Republicans found violations in two provisions of the health care reform bill forcing it back to the House for another vote.

According to Jim Manley, spokesman for Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, the Republicans found “two minor provisions” relating to the higher education provisions of the bill that violate Senate budget rules.

The two provisions in question deal with Pell grants for low-income college students.  Manley said those two provisions would be removed from the bill with Senate approval.  The amended bill will then be returned to the House.

“I’m confident that the House will be able to deal with this quickly,” said Manley.

The House is expected to vote on the revised legislation by the end of the week prior to both chambers of Congress beginning their spring recess.
