SACRAMENTO – Attorney General Becerra today led a coalition of 20 states and D.C. in filing a reply brief in the U.S. Supreme Court in California v. Texas. In the brief, the attorneys general reiterate the harms this ACA Repeal Case is causing our healthcare system and Americans’ healthcare. The brief also opposes arguments by the Trump Administration and the Texas coalition that the case should be sent back to the district court, and urges the Supreme Court to take up the case to resolve uncertainty in the healthcare market.

“Today, our coalition made clear that we must end the uncertainty and harm in our healthcare system caused by the Trump Administration and Texas coalition’s Repeal Lawsuit,” said Attorney General Becerra. “We are hopeful that the Supreme Court agrees with hospitals, bipartisan economists, public health experts, patients groups, businesses and others, and swiftly resolves this lawsuit.”
