Republican senators are almost done drafting the AHCA and will soon submit it to the Congressional Budget Office, but will not make the bill public until it is scored, according to Axios.

Two senior Senate aides revealed that lawmakers will continue to discuss details of the bill even after the draft is submitted, but will hold off on making the bill public until all details are settled.

The CBO will take roughly two weeks to evaluate the bill, and GOP senators hope for a full Senate vote on it before the July 4 recess.
