Florida AG Calls for Legal Review of Mandate in Federal Healthcare Legislation
HC Pro - John Commins, for HealthLeaders Media

Florida Attorney General Bill McCollum says his office will conduct a legal review of the healthcare bills in Congress to determine the constitutionality of the individual mandate that makes health insurance a requirement. McCollum, a former Congressman who is also a Republican candidate for governor in 2010, says he has asked attorneys general in other states to join his review, and he suggested that a court battle would be waged if the reforms as they are now written become law.
