Informal Work Begins on House, Senate Health Reform Compromise

POLITICO’s Live Pulse blog quotes a Roll Call article this morning stating that behind-the-scenes work has begun on merging the Senate and House health reform measures.

CONFERENCE GROUNDWORK BEING LAID, reports Roll Call’s David Drucker: “Congressional aides began laying the groundwork Monday for Democratic leaders in the House and Senate to negotiate competing health care reform bills into legislation that can be signed by President Barack Obama, a senior Senate aide confirmed. … ‘Everything happening this week is happening behind the scenes,’ the Senate aide said of preparations to reconcile the House and Senate bills. ‘Staff is taking the week to review documents. Informal staff meetings may happen, but nothing is scheduled just yet.’”
