WASHINGTON (Indiana's NewsCenter) - The Senate passed the slightly altered Health Care Reconciliation Bill Thursday afternoon sending it back to the House of Representatives.

This so-called "fixes bill" was necessary to get a reluctant House to pass the Senate's health care reform measure Sunday night.

The two minor provisions dealing with Pell Grants were removed due to a Republican challenge that will not affect the new health care law signed by President Obama Tuesday.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says she expects the House will approve the reconciliation bill by the end of the day.
