OKLAHOMA CITY -- Governor Mary Fallin announced on cable news Thursday night that Oklahoma will file a lawsuit against the new healthcare law.

Instead of joining some two dozen states in their lawsuit, Oklahoma will sue on the grounds that the federal healthcare law violates the new constitutional amendment just approved by Oklahoma voters.

State Question 756 changed Oklahoma's constitution to say Oklahomans can't be required to participate in any healthcare system.

Fallin made the announcement on "On the Record with Greta Van Susteren" on Fox News.
