BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

House Republicans' health reform law suit moves forward


House Republicans' lawsuit challenging the Affordable Care Act will move forward, a federal judge decided Wednesday.

U.S. District Court Judge Rosemary Collyer in Washington ruled that the House of Representatives has standing to sue over its allegation that the administration is illegally spending money that Congress never appropriated for the law's cost-sharing provisions, which include reduced deductibles, copays and coinsurance for some beneficiaries.

Judge Collyer wrote that if that allegation is true “the House has been injured in a concrete and particular way that is traceable to the Secretaries and remediable in court.”

Many experts have speculated that the argument could pose a serious threat to the health care law.

Judge Collyer also wrote, however, that the House does not have standing to sue over a different allegation that the administration had no right to delay the law's employer mandate, which requires companies with 50 or more employees to provide coverage or be liable for a hefty penalty.
