Attorney General McCollum joined several Attorneys General yesterday in sending a letter to Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Majority Leader Harry Reid regarding their concerns about the provision in the health care legislation that affords special treatment to the state of Nebraska under the federal Medicaid program.
“As chief legal officers of our states we are contemplating a legal challenge to this provision and we ask you to take action to render this challenge unnecessary by striking that provision,” wrote the Attorneys General of South Carolina, Alabama, Colorado, Florida, Idaho, Michigan, North and South Dakota, Pennsylvania, Texas, Utah, Virginia, and Washington.
A copy of the letter is available here.
