OKLAHOMA CITY â€“ A decision this week by the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals backs Oklahomaâ€™s argument in the stateâ€™s health care case that it has the right to sue the federal government over the lawâ€™s large employer mandate.
The Virginia case involved whether Liberty University had â€śstandingâ€ť to sue the federal government over the health care mandate and whether the Anti-Injunction Act applied to the case. The State of Oklahoma has argued the same issues in federal court in its lawsuit against an IRS rule that goes outside of the law.
A gift of $50,000 was presented to the Salvation Army from the Choctaw Nation to assist with ongoing relief efforts for victims of the tornados that ravaged the central Oklahoma area this Spring. The money was raised through a week of fuel sales and donations at the Choctaw Travel Plazas in southeast Oklahoma. Profits for that designated weekâ€™s gas sales were allocated for the disaster relief.Â Â
