WASHINGTON — The House will vote next week to repeal the health care law Republicans have vowed to undo. They'll also direct work to start on a replacement bill the GOP promised more than four years ago.

The House voted more than 50 times in the past two years to repeal the law in whole or in part. Next week's vote will be the first for such a bill in the new Congress. It will also be the first time the legislation will go to a Republican-controlled Senate.

The legislation does not set any deadlines for committees to complete work on replacement legislation or provide any precise details on its provisions.

House Republicans promised in the 2010 campaign to repeal and replace the health care law.
