Attorney General Pruitt’s Statement on Federal Government Delay of Crippling Large Employer Health Care Mandate


“Oklahoma’s position has been clear from the beginning that the ‘large-employer mandate’ not only violates the law when implemented in states without a state health care exchange, but cripples businesses with burdensome and onerous requirements and penalties,” Attorney General Scott Pruitt said.

“Until now, the Obama Administration has argued in court that the mandate is uncomplicated and easy, but its sudden reversal and delay of the mandate, clearly demonstrates acknowledgement that the 'large-employer mandate' is in fact a complex, job killing and harmful mandate. Our fight continues on behalf of Oklahoma citizens to confront the Administration when it seeks to overreach its authority and circumvent the law."
