House Leaders Meet To Set Top Health Care Priorities

January 5, 2010 8:34 a.m.

House Democratic leaders and key committee chairmen are meeting this afternoon with Speaker Nancy Pelosi to set the stage for future negotiations with their Senate counterparts, where they will shape a final health care reform bill in the coming days and weeks.

Those in attendance include Reps. Henry Waxman (D-CA), George Miller (D-CA), Rosa DeLauro (D-CT), Chris Van Hollen (D-MD), John Larson (D-CT), and House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD).

These principals will be fielding input from rank and file members to enter negotiations with a series of issues on which they’d like to see the House bill prevail over the Senate’s.

“That’s what we’re going to [be meeting about] right now,” Van Hollen said.
