“We’re waiting to see what the legislative text actually outlines but we remain open minded and willing to look at the details of the plan,” Representative Mark Meadows, chairman of the House of Representatives Freedom Caucus, told reporters after a meeting of the group, which helped kill a White House-backed plan last month.

“We’re hopeful that we’ll get the legislative text within the next 24 hours.”
