Jackley Worried About Decision's Impact On SD

June 28, 2012, 12:00 PM by Brady Mallory

Jackley Worried About Decision's Impact On SD
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

Attorney General Marty Jackley says he's worried how the federal takeover of health care will affect South Dakotans.

According to Jackley the Supreme Court upheld the individual insurance requirement because it declared that the penalty for not having coverage by the deadline in 2014 can be collected as a tax.

Jackley says it violates individual and state constitutional rights and puts a burden on small businesses.  He says they might not be able to offer the same type of coverage for families.

"The voters this fall will be making a decision of how important state and individual rights and where health care goes from here," Jackley said.

Jackley says the decision that Medicaid Expansion violates the constitution and would jeopardize the states is a victory for South Dakota.

We'll hear more from Jackley during our team reports on the decision which begin on KELOLAND News at Five.
