Rep. Wilson will vote for health care bill



Published: Fri, March 19, 2010 @ 12:48 p.m.

U.S. Rep. Charlie Wilson, D-6th, said today he will vote in favor of the health-care bill.

The U.S. House will vote Sunday on a bill similar to one approved by the U.S. Senate in December. The two legislative bodies will reconcile the differences in the two bills.

“This bill is not perfect, but it is a strong step forward,” said Wilson of St. Clairsville.

Wilson, who is anti-abortion, said he gave serious consideration to the possibility that the bill would fund abortions.

“I am confident that the language in the Senate bill ensures that there will be no federal funding for abortions,” Wilson said.

Wilson’s congressional district includes all of Columbiana County and a portion of Mahoning County and portions or all of 10 other counties.
