Pamela Harris, et al.
Pat Quinn, Governor of Illinois, et al.
Question Presented:

May a State, consistent with the First and Fourteenth Amendments to the United States Constitution, compel personal care providers to accept and financially support a private organization as their exclusive representative to petition the State for greater reimbursements from its Medicaid programs? 2. Did the lower court err in holding that the claims of providers in the Home Based Support Services Program are not ripe for judicial review?
