GOP challenges send health bill back to House

Washington Post, March 25, 2010

Senate Republicans have successfully identified two minor violations of reconciliation rules in the final piece of the healthcare package, forcing the Senate to change the reconciliation bill and ship it to the House of Representatives for final passage. But Democratic leaders said the provisions that will be struck do not significantly affect the student loan program or the healthcare bill overall. The corrected legislation most likely will not be subjected to additional challenges when it is sent back to the House and is expected to receive final approval before the weekend, the Washington Post reports.
