The 13-member working group of senators tasked with revising the American Health Care Act does not contain any women, according to a new report.

The Washington Examiner reports that the panel includes seven high-ranking Republican senators, such as Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Majority Whip John Cornyn.

Not on the list are Sens. Susan Collins (Maine) and Bill Cassidy (Louisiana), who wrote a separate healthcare bill.

The group will make changes to the bill it feels are necessary before the measure is brought up for a vote on the chamber floor, following the House's passage of the bill Thursday.

The full list of members, according to the Examiner:

  • Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.)
  • Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn (R-Texas)
  • Sen. John Thune (R-S.D.)
  • Sen. John Barrasso (R-Wyo.)
  • Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah)
  • Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah)
  • Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.)
  • Sen. Mike Enzi (R-Wyo.)
  • Sen. Rob Portman (R-Ohio)
  • Sen. Pat Toomey, (R-Pa.)
  • Sen. Cory Gardner (R-Col.)
  • Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas)
  • Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.)

The AHCA in its current form is not receiving the warmest of receptions in the Senate, as several lawmakers in the north wing of the Capitol have expressed a desire to change the bill.
