NC attorney general asked to fight health care law

RALEIGH

Senate Minority Leader Phil Berger of Rockingham County wrote to Cooper on Wednesday asking him to challenge the health care bill that President Obama signed into law on Tuesday.

Berger wants Cooper to join the fight in challenging the constitutionality of the law. He said protecting the constitution is not a partisan issue and if Cooper joins the case it would show that state elected officials are doing everything they can to protect individual rights.

Spokeswoman for Cooper, Noelle Talley, said earlier this week state attorneys are reviewing information sent to them from other attorneys general which is routine for all issues.
