“Congress has limits on its authority,” said the Governor-Elect, and he reaffirmed that his attorney general will immediately seek to join a Florida lawsuit in which 20 states are involved challenging the Congress’s power.

He said that he hopes for a quick decision so that states can plan as they go forward.
