LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - In a statement released to NewsChannel 11 from the Governor's office, Perry talks about Texas' next steps after the passage of the federal health care bill:
"Texas leaders will continue to do everything in our power to find ways to protect our families, taxpayers and medical providers from the federal government's misguided efforts to take over our health care system and infringe upon the fundamental rights of individuals and the state."
"My office is working closely with fellow governors and with Attorney General Greg Abbott to explore the state's options, including legal action, to challenge the constitutionality of this national health care bill that will cost Texas taxpayers billions of dollars and drive down the quality of health care."
