AGs seek meeting on health care law

COLUMBIA — Attorneys general from South Carolina and Florida have asked the White House to arrange a meeting with Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius over prosecutors’ concerns
about the health care overhaul.

In a letter provided Tuesday to The Associated Press, Alan Wilson of South Carolina and Pam Bondi of Florida ask President Obama to direct Sebelius to meet with them, saying previous requests made directly to the secretary have gone unanswered.

Wilson and Bondi were among 13 attorneys general who have previously written to Sebelius questioning whether there will be enough protection of consumer data in Obama’s signature health law.
