Kroger and Kulongoski Say Oregon Going to Court To Defend Federal Health Care Bill


Last week, Oregon Attorney General John Kroger said he would explore the possibility of filing a legal brief on behalf of the state in support of the new federal health care bill.

Today, Kroger and Gov. Ted Kulongoski announced that the State of Oregon will in fact take legal action in court to defend the constitutionality of the new federal health bill. That's in direct contrast to more than a dozen other state attorneys general who plan to challenge the new bill in court.

Kroger also said Oregon is inviting other states to work with him on a legal strategy. So far, no word on any takers.
