Mo. Lt. Gov. wants response to health care suit
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Missouri's lieutenant governor wants a judge to order federal officials to respond to his lawsuit challenging the health care overhaul.
Republican Peter Kinder's lawsuit contends that part of the new law will harm older Missourians.
Kinder filed the lawsuit in July. This week, his lawyers asked a judge to order the defendants to file their response by Nov. 24.
The lawsuit names as defendants U.S. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, Attorney General Eric Holder and Labor Secretary Hilda Solis.
