Kentucky and California’s attorney general will likely ban together in a lawsuit over what many are calling the new "problem-riddled" prescription drug plan.

Bill Lockyer says the program has already cost the state of California 150-million dollars in emergency prescription help.

The Medicare funding program took effect January first, but has been nothing but a headache for many enrollees.

A clause in the legislation requires states to reimburse the federal government for money they will save.

Lockyer says he'll argue it's "unconstitutional."

Kentucky Attorney General Greg Stumbo says the so-called "clawback" will cost Kentucky 88-million dollars in 2006 alone.

Missouri and Texas are also expected to join the suit.
