Zoeller Pleased Supreme Court Hearing Health Care Law

Indiana’s attorney general is reacting favorably to the US Supreme Court’s decision to hear arguments on the federal health care law.

Indiana is one of 26 states that filed a lawsuit in federal court questioning the constitutionality of the health care law. Various challenges have earned mixed reactions in court. Some opinions have ruled the Affordable Care Act or portions of it unconstitutional, while others have upheld it.

Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller has called for the Supreme Court’s review since the law was passed. Still, he says he and the other attorneys general who filed the suit still recognize the need for health care reform.

“But I think it’s still an appropriate question,” he says, “to make sure that we build out whatever reform Congress chooses in a way that’s constitutionally sound.”

The Supreme Court will hear arguments in March. A decision could come by next June.
