Governor Scott Walker To Attend Four-Day NGA Meeting

Posted Monday, July 9, 2012 --- 10:05 a.m.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Gov. Scott Walker is attending the National Governors Association meeting starting Thursday in Williamsburg, Va.

The meeting which brings together both Republican and Democratic governors from across the country runs through Sunday.

Walker said in a statement released Monday that he wants to learn about economic development initiatives being pushed in other states.

Walker plans to attend committee meetings that focus on education and workforce and health and human services. Walker has vowed not to move forward with implementing the federal health care overhaul law, even though it was upheld as constitutional by the U.S. Supreme Court.

The meeting comes just over a month after Walker survived a recall vote.
