Several conservative Democrats have signaled they will vote with the party to bring the health care bill to the Senate floor for debate, but Sen. Mary Landrieu is still on the fence.

TPMDC’s Brian Beutler is on the scene at the Department of Health and Human Services, where Landrieu (D-LA) joined an Adoption Day event.

“I haven’t made a final decision, because I literally have been…reading the bill, and that’s going to continue ’til about 6 or 7 tonight, and then after I have all the information in front of me I’m gonna make a final decision.”

Landrieu said she had been leaning against voting “yes” on the motion to proceed until a meeting with Majority Leader Harry Reid yesterday, which tilted her into “neutral” territory.

She said she will likely release a statement regarding her final decision in the morning.
