State attorney general looks to challenge health care bill

March 22, 2010

Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller is looking at possible legal challenges to the federal health care overhaul.

The Republican said he and counterparts in several other states are concerned the $938 billion health care bill approved narrowly by the House late Sunday might infringe state and individual rights.

Zoeller said attorneys general in at least 13 states have signaled they intend to challenge the constitutionality of the legislation in court.

The bill awaiting President Barack Obama's signature would extend coverage to 32 million uninsured Americans and ban insurance companies from denying coverage to people with pre-existing medical conditions.
