California’s Attorney General Leading Effort To Defend ACA Against Texas Lawsuit

Office of California Attorney General Xavier Becerra

California’s Attorney General is leading a multi-state effort to defend the Affordable Care Act against a lawsuit filed by the state of Texas.  Xavier Becerra says a previous Supreme Court ruling has determined the ACA is legal.

 

Becerra is leading a coalition of twenty states and the District of Columbia in the effort after the Supreme Court agreed to review a Fifth Circuit Decision that held the ACA’s individual mandate was unconstitutional and questioned whether the remaining provisions of the law could still stand.
