WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Republican Senator Susan Collins, who helped torpedo President Donald Trump's effort to repeal Obamacare, said on Sunday she was leaning towards a 'yes' vote on the Senate budget resolution to advance tax reform.


"I am likely a yes on that budget. I very much want to see tax reform," Collins said on ABC's "This Week" news program.


The Senate is expected to vote on the fiscal 2018 measure this week. The resolution contains a legislative tool that could facilitate adoption of a tax reform bill later this year.
