Beshear, Attorneys General File Response in Affordable Care Act Lawsuit

On Monday, March 25, 2019, Attorney General Andy Beshear and a coalition of 20 attorneys general filed their response in Texas v. US in the US Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit. Beshear said the case is about making sure families have the ability to see a good doctor and afford treatment. The filing continues the coalition’s legal defense of the Affordable Care Act. The attorneys general argue that the plaintiffs do not have standing, that the district court wrongly concluded that the minimum coverage provision was unconstitutional and that there was no legal basis for declaring the rest of the ACA invalid.
