TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- Florida's attorney general has concerns about the proposed health care bill moving through Congress.
Attorney General Bill McCollum, who is seeking the Republican gubernatorial nomination, said Tuesday he's concerned about the constitutionality of the bill and a requirement that people pay a fine or tax if they don't obtain the required health insurance. McCollum said the requirement is particularly troubling to Floridians guaranteed by the state Constitution to be free of government intrusion.
McCollum's office said the attorney general is joining colleagues from around the country to evaluate the legislation and specifically a provision that provides 100 percent federal Medicaid funding to only Nebraska.
