Washington, D.C., December 22, 2011
Contact: Randy

The Supreme Court has released its oral argument schedule for the challenges against the health care law. The Court announced it will hear arguments March 26 - 28. As you probably know, the Court will decide whether the "individual mandate" included in the health care law, which requires Americans to buy health insurance, is an improper exercise of federal constitutional authority.

Joining in the challenge are Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Louisiana, Maine, Michigan, Mississippi, Nebraska, Nevada, North Dakota, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, Washington, Wisconsin and Wyoming.

With this argument schedule, the Court will have plenty of time to issue a decision by the end of its term in late June or early July.
