Washington - Rep. Baron Hill says he sees clear signs of progress in Afghanistan and plans to support further funding for the war.

The Indiana Democrat told reporters Thursday that a trip to the region last week with other members of Congress eased his reservations about President Barack Obama's war plan in Afghanistan.

Hill he says he plans to vote for funding for the war and believes that the revised U.S. mission, which includes a troop surge, is having a positive impact on safety in Afghanistan.

He says he also was heartened by the support of the Pakistani military, whose commitment he had doubted.
