WASHINGTON, DC - House Majority Leader Steny H. Hoyer (MD) released the following statement on the rule for consideration of health insurance reform legislation:
"The rule issued sets up a straight forward process with three votes.  First, a vote on the rule.  Second, a vote on the Senate bill itself, which will go to the President for his signature.  And third, a vote on improvements to the Senate bill, which will then be sent to the Senate for passage.  Tomorrow, I look forward to both a civil and honest debate, as well as passage of health care reform that will reduce the deficit and increase access and affordability for families and small businesses across our nation."
