A final vote on the Senate's healthcare bill will now take place at 7 a.m. on Christmas Eve — an hour earlier than lawmakers originally scheduled.

Democratic and Republican leaders agreed Wednesday afternoon to bump up that final vote, fearing a snowstorm that was about to hit the Midwest could impact lawmakers' holiday travel plans.

This is the second time party leaders have agreed to amend their healthcare schedule. Earlier this week, Democrats and Republicans agreed to hold the healthcare vote on Christmas Eve morning in order to take up a debt ceiling increase before their holiday recess.
