Vets bill OK seems certain, Senate vote continues

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON (AP) - Senate passage of a veterans health bill seems certain as an overwhelming number of senators have voted to approve the measure.

More than 30 minutes into the roll call, at least 90 senators had voted to approve the legislation. The vote was still underway.

The legislation would make it easier for veterans who have encountered delays getting medical appointments at Department of Veterans Affairs facilities to get VA-paid treatment from local doctors instead.

The measure resembles legislation the House approved Tuesday.
