Press Release, Office of the Maryland Attorney General

BALTIMORE, MD (December 15, 2018) – Maryland Attorney General Brian E. Frosh today released the following statement:

“The Texas Court’s decision striking down the entire Affordable Care Act will have a devastating impact on Maryland families. Hundreds of thousands will lose health insurance coverage altogether, and millions more who have pre-existing conditions will be endangered as well. Our lawsuit to protect the ACA continues here in Maryland. We will continue our fight to defend its constitutionality and to protect the health and lives of our people who depend upon it.”

On September 13, 2018, Maryland Attorney General Brian E. Frosh filed a lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland against the Trump Administration, seeking a declaratory judgment that the Affordable Care Act (ACA) is constitutional. That lawsuit is pending.
