(AP) -Wisconsin Attorney General Josh Kaul is leading a coalition of 16 attorneys general in urging the President to use the Defense Production Act to boost production of masks and respirators in the fight against COVID-19.

Kaul says healthcare workers, law enforcement and other first responders "need resources now." The Democratic attorney general says the President must act now and use his broad power to address shortages in critical supplies.

The President has balked at using his authority under the recently invoked Defense Protection Act to compel the private sector to manufacture masks and ventilators, even as he encourages them to spur production.
