Washington (CNN) – Two liberal U.S. senators who had not committed to supporting the health care reform bill said Saturday they will vote "yes."
The holdouts were Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont, an Independent who caucuses with the Democrats, and Sen. Sherrod Brown, an Ohio Democrat.
Sanders said he will vote for approval because the measure now contains provisions for new community health centers. Brown said he favored the insurance reforms in the legislation.
Neither of the men are totally pleased, but they told CNN it's a good first step.
