Stupak Deal

March 21, 2010 11:55 a.m.

We’ve been hearing conflicting word through the day on a deal with the White House which would bring Rep. Bart Stupak (D-MI) and what remains of his group of pro-life Dem hold-outs into the Yes column. Broadly speaking that executive order from the president will clarify whatever ambiguities the Stupak group believes remains in the Senate wording on the non-use of federal funds for abortion. But obviously, the devil’s in the details. And the details are still not clear. Late word we’re getting is that that deal has just been finalized. We expect to hear more shortly.

A press conference with Stupak and others will start momentarily. Our Brian Beutler is there.
