Health care law challenge goes before Court of Appeals

Florida already leads a lawsuit challenging the federal health care law, but state officials are going a step further and ignoring the law almost entirely. The decisions put Florida at odds with conservative governors in Texas, Indiana and Wisconsin, who are fighting the health law’s constitutionality on one hand and planning for the law on the other. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit in Atlanta is scheduled to hear arguments Wednesday in the suit pitting 26 states against the federal government.
