A federal judge struck down a Maryland law yesterday that would have effectively forced the nation's largest employer, Wal-Mart Stores, to spend more money on health care for its employees here.
U.S. District Judge J. Frederick Motz ruled that the "Wal-Mart Law," which won overwhelming support in the General Assembly this year, ran afoul of a 32-year-old federal statute intended to protect corporations from having to navigate a patchwork of benefits requirements from state to state.
Here is the link to the final decision.
I wonder how the Ehrlich campaign will spin this. Will Steele triumph this as well? The Post reports the WalMart bill carries a high level of support in Maryland.
