Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette says Michigan policymakers should wait until after the November presidential election before moving forward on some aspects of the federal health care overhaul.

Schuette responded Thursday at a news conference to the U.S. Supreme Court's vote to uphold the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act, which requires Americans to purchase health insurance or face a financial penalty.

He was among two dozen attorneys general who filed briefs opposing the law.

Schuette says the law's individual mandate requirement "imposes huge costs on businesses across the country, which will choke and strangle the economy."

With the Supreme Court's ruling, Michigan will have to set up a web site where individuals and small business owners can comparison shop for health insurance starting in 2014.
