Sen. Susan Collins says future efforts on Capitol Hill to hammer out a new healthcare plan will be done in public with no more secrecy.

"It's much better to have public hearings and to hear from witnesses. I'll be playing a major role in that process," said Collins, a Maine Republican, according to the Bangor Daily News.

"The fact the health insurance markets are so unstable is an indication of flaws in the law. They need to be corrected and that will be one of the focuses I have . . . I want to fix the egregious flaws in the law, but not throw the baby out with the bathwater."

On Tuesday, Collins and two other moderate Republican senators helped stop a Senate plan to repeal the Affordable Care Act by promising to block it.
