Republicans in Missouri's statehouse called on the state's attorney general to join the lawsuit against the federal health care law.
Wrap: The group of Republicans spoke out one week after Missouri's Senate joined the House urging Attorney General Chris Koster to sue.
St. Louis County Republican Senator Jane Cunningham says it wouldn't cost the state anything.

After Missouri lawmakers voted to urge Attorney General Chris Koster to join a lawsuit against federal health care, KMOX asked Koster to respond.
Wrap: But the attorney general refused comment after his news conference about cleaning up the Lake of the Ozarks.
Republican lawmakers, including St. Louis County Republican Representative Tim Jones, say Koster needs to act.

Jones says the federal law is harming Missouri, at least in the number of staffers trying to figure out how it'll affect the Show-Me State.
