Obama, Biden to meet with governors at White House
WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama is meeting with the nation's governors, hoping to hear ideas from the states on how to repair the United States' slowly recovering economy.
Obama says some of the best ideas often start in the states and then are copied on national levels. He says he wants to hear about the governors' experiments and how he might benefit from their efforts.
On the eve of Monday's meeting, Obama urged collaboration between the White House and statehouses. He says governors and the White House should work in partnership.
The governors, in town for weekend National Governors Association meetings, planned to meet Monday with Obama, Vice President Joe Biden and their wives.
