The State of Indiana and 15 public school corporations in the state are suing the federal government over the Affordable Care Act.
The suit is against the Internal Revenue Service, the Treasury and the Department of Health and Human Services.
The new act requires the corporations to provide basic health insurance to all employees who work thirty or more hours a week.
That includes aides, bus drivers, cafeteria workers, substitute teachers and the like.
The state and the schools say the practical reality would be catastrophic to them and even more staff and services would suffer.
The two corporations in our area involved in the suit are Southwest Parke Schools and Vincennes Community School Corporation.
