CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - A West Virginia auto dealer still wants to block the federal health care overhaul from requiring he cover the morning-after birth control pill for his employees.

Joe Holland and his South Charleston Chevrolet dealership have revised the U.S. District Court lawsuit they filed in June.

Holland argues that the coverage mandate violates his religious beliefs.

The Charleston Gazette reports that Holland updated the lawsuit by dropping a request for a temporary ban of the provision.

That change came after Holland learned that the health care plan he offers employees already covers such drugs.
