No Final Vote on Health Reform before August Recess, Reid Confirms

Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) “said on Thursday the full Senate will debate and vote on healthcare overhaul legislation after it returns in September from a monthlong recess,” Reuters reports.

Reid told reporters he expected the Senate Finance Committee would approve its version of the legislation before the Senate starts its recess August 7.

"We’ll come back in the fall," and work in the full Senate on the bill, he said.
