Gov. Jim Douglas will join his fellow governors Tuesday in a meeting with President-elect Barack Obama and Vice President-elect Joe Biden.
Douglas, as vice chairman of the National Governors Association, said he expects he will have the floor to address the incoming leaders. With $64 million in immediate budget-cut decisions facing him, Douglas plans to appeal to them for moola. Namely Medicaid and road/bridge moola.
This, he said, is among the best ways to counteract the financial crunch.
Anything else you'd like to have the governor tell the president-elect?
