Obama to sign health reconciliation bill Tuesday

President Barack Obama will sign a package of fixes to the healthcare reform law on Tuesday in Virginia.

By putting his signature on the measure, which no Republicans supported, Obama will finalize the healthcare reform overhaul that took Congress over a year to draft and pass. 

Obama signed the underlying healthcare legislation into law earlier this week.

Attached to the fixes is a student loan reform bill. 

"In addition to lowering healthcare costs for American families and small businesses, this historic law raises the maximum Pell Grant, makes loan payments more affordable for students with unmanageable debt, and increases investments in community colleges, Historically Black Colleges, Hispanic Serving Institutions, and other Minority Serving Institutions, all at no additional cost to taxpayers," the White House said in a statement.

The signing ceremony will take place at the Alexandria campus of the Northern Virginia Community College, which is just outside Washington D.C.
