MD AG's Office: Too Soon For Health Care Lawsuit

Play associated audio

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) A spokeswoman for Maryland Attorney General Doug Gansler says it's premature to contemplate a legal challenge to national health care legislation.

Raquel Guillory said Tuesday that the most responsible thing to do is wait until all the bills are signed rather than sending out press releases with threats of legal challenges.

After all is final, Guillory says a through review will be conducted for any potential constitutional issues.

Gansler is a Democrat who backed President Barack Obama when he was campaigning for the White House.

A group of Republican attorneys general are planning to sue in court to stop or blunt the landmark health care reforms passed by Congress.
