WASHINGTON, D.C. — Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott is in Washington, D.C., for three days of U.S. Supreme Court arguments on the challenge to the Obama Administration's federal health care reform law.
Texas was one of the 13 states who filed legal action challenging the constitutionality of the federal health care law immediately after President Obama signed the bill into law in March 2010.
Since then, the multistate challenge has grown to 26 states, and also includes the National Federation of Independent Business and two individual plaintiffs.
