A House liberal leader she expects final language of an executive order on abortion to be released Sunday afternoon.
Rep. Lynn Woolsey (D-Calif.), the co-chairwoman of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, said lawmakers expect to have an executive order supplementing their health bill before a vote on a rule for that bill is conducted.
The executive order is at the center of a final vote on healthcare, with Democrats who oppose abortion rights demanding the order before pledging their votes.
Rep. Bart Stupak (D-Mich.), the leader of a bloc of Democrats opposing abortion rights, said early this afternoon he would still vote against the underlying bill.
Woolsey said she didn't know how Stupak would end up voting, but said the process was moving along
"It's coming along as it needs to," she said.
