INDIANAPOLIS (Indiana’s NewsCenter) - Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller announced Wednesday that 26-states including Indiana have asked the United States Supreme Court to consider a legal challenge to the federal health care law.

the group of states are formally asking the court to decide whether it is constitutional for Congress to mandate private individuals to buy health insurance or face a financial penalty - and if not, whether the entire health care law must be invalidated.

Zoeller says Indiana has not paid legal fees to join the lawsuit or appeal and has not paid anything for outside legal counsel and will not spend state tax dollars beyond that of his office’s regular budget.

During the 5 PM broadcast on Indiana’s NewsCenter Zoeller updated us on this topic as well as lifting the liability cap surrounding the Indiana State Fair stage collapse and the lawsuit de-funding Planned Parenthood in the Hoosier state. Just watch the video for the details.
