Jackley disappointed with health care court ruling

SIOUX FALLS (AP) -- Attorney General Marty Jackley says he is disappointed by the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling upholding the federal health care law.

Jackley says the decision was a step back for individual rights.

He notes that South Dakota had been one of the 12 states to challenge the law. Jackley says, "We did that because we felt strongly of the Constitutional guarantees of an individual as well as states' rights."

Jackley says the immediate impact will be from the individual mandate for health care coverage. He says he's concerned that small businesses may not be able to offer family-type insurance coverage to employees, so people will have to pay more or be taxed.
