Governor McDonnell Along with 27 Governors Request Expedited Review of Healthcare Lawsuits


 
RICHMOND
- Governor Bob McDonnell along with 27 Republican governors sent a letter to President Obama today requesting him to direct the United States Department of Justice to support an expedited appellate process for the pending healthcare lawsuits to reach the United States Supreme Court as soon as possible.  Governor McDonnell has been an outspoken proponent of expediting the appeal of the health care litigation since the Virginia decision. McDonnell worked with the RGA leadership and the Governors of Florida and South Carolina to coordinate this letter by a majority of states supporting an expedited appeal.  The letter is attached.
