TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Attorney Generals from 13
states are suing the federal government to stop the massive health
care overhaul, claiming it's unconstitutional.

The lawsuit was filed immediately after President Barack Obama

Health and Human Services, Treasury and Labor.

Florida Attorney General Bill McCollum is taking the lead in the
lawsuit. Attorneys general from South Carolina, Nebraska, Texas,
Michigan, Utah, Pennsylvania, Alabama, South Dakota, Louisiana,
Idaho, Washington and Colorado are joining in. Other GOP attorneys
general may join the lawsuit later or sue separately.

The lawsuit was filed in federal court in Pensacola.
