COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — Attorneys general from South Carolina and Florida want the White House to facilitate a meeting with Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius over their 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 Barack Obama to direct Sebelius to meet with them to discuss the Affordable Care Act.

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.

In Tuesday's letter, the Republican prosecutors say they've received no response. Neither the White House nor Sebelius' office immediately responded to AP's request for comment.

South Carolina and Florida were among states that sued the administration over the health care law.
