MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Gov. Tony Evers says he will be sending a letter to Attorney General Josh Kaul this week calling for Wisconsin to “change our stance” in a multi-state lawsuit seeking the repeal of the federal health care law.

Evers campaigned on withdrawing from the lawsuit. But after he won election in November, Republicans in the state Legislature passed legislation preventing Evers from withdrawing from the lawsuit without the lawmakers’ approval.

Evers wouldn’t say at a news conference on Wednesday whether his letter would comply with the law.

He said, “We are going to issue that letter directly to the attorney general and we believe it will be in such a format that he will be able to move forward.”

As for how it will not violate the law, Evers says, “You’ll have to wait and see the letter.”
