Scott Brown coming to Washington Thursday 

Republican Scott Brown said he will come to Washington tomorrow to meet with the Massachusetts delegation and his colleagues in the GOP leadership.

Brown in all likelihood will not be sworn in yet.

Massachusetts election officials must certify the results and sent them to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., who will then decide when to swear in Brown.

Reid has promised to seat Brown as soon as he receives certification from state election officials.

 Brown said there is nothing specific on his agenda yet, but he said he looks forward to being the 41st Republican vote in the upper chamber, which could block the current health care plan "and bring it back to the drawing board."

Brown said if he is asked for input on health care reform, he'll go to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., and "suggest to let the states tell the federal government, this is what we would like to do," on health care reform. "And maybe work with the federal government," on incentives for states to come up with their own health care reform plans.

Massachusetts already has its own health care reform plan in place but it has proven too costly.
