AG: Idaho Can’t Stop Health Care Reform

Brian Kane, an assistant chief deputy in the Idaho attorney general's office, offered a four-page opinion on the validity of nullification. (Click here to read the opinion.) He concludes that "there is no right to pick and choose which federal laws a State will allow." Some Republican lawmakers are pushing a nullification bill that would stop state departments and agencies from implementing aspects of the federal health care reform. The proposal is expected to be introduced into the House State Affairs Committee on Wednesday/Brian Murphy, Idaho Statesman. More here.

Question: Anyone surprised that Idaho can't unilaterally ignore federal health care reform?
