Governor Matt Mead announced  that on Monday,  Wyoming will officially request permission to join the lawsuit filed in Florida.

The lawsuit claims the federal health care law exceeds Congress’s commerce clause power.  The law imposes financial penalties on citizens who have not secured health insurance by 2014.   Mead says “Wyoming’s voice needs to be heard”.

Wyoming will participate in the case, Mead says,  through  to  its final resolution,  likely in the United States Supreme Court.   He noted the initial cost to join the lawsuit was $1000.00.  Additional costs might be assessed if the case proceeds to the U.S. Supreme Court which is expected.

Governor Mead also supports legislation to be considered in the upcoming session of the Wyoming legislature that would establish a health litigation fund.
