Governor Says No To Lawsuit

by

Madison, Wi (WSAU) Wisconsin's majority Democrats quickly shot down Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen's request to sue Washington over the law that makes people but health insurance.

Van Hollen, a Republican, needed permission from either the governor or one house of the Legislature to file suit. But Governor Doyle called it a "frivolous and political attempt to thwart the actions of Congress". And Doyle said Wisconsin would not "enter into litigation intended to deny health care for tens of thousands of residents".

Democratic leaders of both houses said they would not bring Van Hollen's request up for a vote. But Assembly GOP minority leader Jeff Fitzgerald of Horicon said he'll try to force a vote the next time the house meets-most likely in mid-April.
