(CNN) — The state of Oklahoma will file a lawsuit within the next few weeks challenging the constitutionality of President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul, according to the state’s incoming attorney general.

“There is great clarity for me on the necessary and urgent need to exercise my responsibility to defend Oklahoma’s Constitution against a federal government and president that have gone too far in their overreach of power and authority,” Attorney General-elect Scott Pruitt said in a written statement Friday.

Pruitt was backed by Oklahoma Governor-elect Mary Fallon, who called the health care overhaul an unfunded mandate that is “bad for our economy, bad for our health and bad for our states.”
