INDIANAPOLIS - A federal judge says more than three dozen Indiana school districts can continue to sue over health care reform -- at least for now.
On Tuesday, the judge refused to dismiss the lawsuit by 39 districts.
Those mostly small rural districts claim the federal government should not be able to tax them if they don’t offer health care to all full-time employees.
Those districts have objected to the law’s requirement to offer health coverage to anyone working 30 hours per week -- calling it an undue financial burden.
A hearing on the lawsuit was set for October.
