Governor orders Nevada to join health reform suit
San Francisco Chronicle

Gov. Jim Gibbons has signed an executive order for Nevada to join 14 other states suing the federal government over health care reform.

The Republican governor on Tuesday said the state would be represented by Las Vegas lawyer Mark Hutchison.

Democratic Nevada Attorney General Catherine Cortez Masto refused an earlier directive from Gibbons to join the multistate challenge to the health bill passed by Congress and signed by President Obama.
