Chris Koster undecided on health care lawsuit

Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster says he should decide within the next two weeks whether or not to join a multi-state lawsuit against last year’s overhaul of the nation’s health care system.

"We continue to work on that. As you know, there are a lot of moving pieces in this and so the research continues," Koster said.

Both the state House and Senate have passed non-binding resolutions asking Koster to follow the wishes of Missouri residents and challenge the constitutionality of the law. A symbolic statewide ballot measure to reject the overhaul passed in August with more than 70 percent of the vote.
