Daugaard: SD Will Wait For Election To Implement Law

Daugaard: SD Will Wait For Election To Implement Law

The U.S. Supreme Court ruled Thursday to uphold most of the federal health care reform law saying that the individual mandate in the law is Constitutional because the penalty for not having health insurance is essentially a new tax.

South Dakota Governor Dennis Daugaard says he is disappointed in the Supreme Court's decision and says South Dakota will wait to start implementing the law until after Election Day.

"We're studying the need for health insurance exchanges and the cost of implementing that and carrying one on, but we're not going to take any steps to comply with this law until after the election. My hope is the new President and Congress will overturn it," Daugaard said.

Daugaard believes the federal government can not afford the federal health care reform.
