Obama tells governors he'll help with budgets

USA Today, December 3, 2008

President-elect Barack Obama has reassured the nation's cash-strapped governors that he will include them in plans to steady the economy with investments they say they desperately need in infrastructure and jobs. Obama flew to Philadelphia to meet with 49 of the nation's governors and governors-elect to discuss how the federal government can help them balance their budgets and provide basic services as the ranks of the poor grow and food and health-care programs are strained.
