FRANKLIN, Ind. (WISH) - Indiana Senator Richard Lugar isn't convinced a health care bill will be voted on this year. He made the comment following a Sunday night lecture at Franklin College.

24-Hour News 8 later asked Senator Lugar whether he believes a bill will come to a vote this year.

"I'm not certain that there will. It could come off the tracks in this committee deliberation or it might simply not have ultimately sixty votes which would be necessary to stop the filibuster which will clearly occur," Sen. Lugar answered.

But Senator Lugar expects the controversial health care issue to overshadow all other issues the remainder of the senate session.
