WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Sen. Kent Conrad, D-N.D., voted to approve health care reform legislation Wednesday in the Senate Finance Committee, joining a majority to advance the proposal.


Conrad is a member of the Gang of Six, a group of senators who crafted the proposal considered by the committee.

Democratic leaders will now meld the committee's proposal with others previously considered in Congress, so that a single bill can be brought to the full Senate for a vote.
