WASHINGTON (AP) - The last congressional panel working on health care reform will have to wait a little longer before it's done.
The Senate Finance Committee was supposed to meet today to vote on the $900 billion overhaul package that it debated for two weeks.
But it's still waiting for a final cost analysis from the Congressional Budget Office so the expectation now is that vote will take place tomorrow.
The bill, which calls for co-ops, not a public option, will be combined with the version approved by the health committee -- which does include a public option.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has indicated the final version, which he hopes to have on the Senate floor next week, will include the public option.
