Three More States Ready Lawsuits Against Healthcare Reform

Oklahoma, Ohio and Georgia are poised to be the next states to file suits against healthcare reform.

Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt announced last week that he plans to file a suit challenging the law's constitutionality, according to a Legal Newsline report. 

"There is great clarity for me on the necessary and urgent need to exercise my responsibility to defend Oklahoma's Constitution against a federal government and president that have gone too far in their overreach of power and authority," Attorney General Pruitt said in a statement.

New Georgia Attorney General Sam Olens stated he would sign off on a motion to join the reform challenge of several other states being led by Florida Attorney General Bill McCollum, according to a Bloomberg report.

Lastly, Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine said at his swearing in over the weekend he also plans to join the Florida challenge, according to a Plain Dealer report.
