Patrick to join fellow governors on news program

BOSTON (AP) -- Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick will join a panel on "Face the Nation" over the holiday weekend.

Patrick, a Democrat, is scheduled to appear on the CBS show Sunday to discuss national issues with two Republican governors, Scott Walker of Wisconsin and John Kasich of Ohio.

Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa will also join the roundtable discussion with host Bob Schieffer.

Kasich and Walker garnered national attention this year for plans to restrict public employees' collective bargaining rights. Massachusetts legislators Friday are scheduled to vote on their own plan to limit collective bargaining over municipal health insurance plans.

Patrick will appear on the show via satellite.
