Atlanta – Next week is huge for the 26-state coalition challenging the constitutionality of the Obama administration’s Patient Protection and Affordability Act, and Georgia Attorney General Sam Olens will be among the handful of people in Washington on Monday at the U.S. Supreme Court hearing.

On Thursday, Olens updated attendees at a Georgia Public Policy Foundation Leadership Breakfast on the litigation. To view his videotaped speech on the Foundation’s YouTube channel, click here.
