Austin Scott Introduces Resolution Directing AG To Challenge Health Care Law

The drama of Crossover Day continued as state Rep. Austin Scott, a GOP candidate for governor, introduced a resolution directing Attorney General Thurbert Baker to challenge the constitutionality of the newly enacted health care law.

H.R. 1824 is co-sponsored by House Speaker David Ralston.

The bill, which is intended to be a joint resolution by the House and Senate, would have the force of law if adopted by the General Assembly and signed by the Governor.
