States probing Senate healthcare deal

Associated Press/Houston Chronicle, December 23, 2009

The top prosecutors in seven states are probing the constitutionality of a political deal that cut a funding break for Nebraska in order to pass a federal healthcare reform bill, South Carolina's attorney general said. Attorney General Henry McMaster said he and his counterparts in Alabama, Colorado, Michigan, North Dakota, Texas, and Washington state—all Republicans—are jointly taking a look at the deal they've dubbed the "Nebraska compromise." McMaster's move comes at the request of Republican U.S. Sens. Lindsey Graham and Jim DeMint of South Carolina.
