Alabama Leaders in Washington

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — Lt. Gov. Jim Folsom, Senate President Pro Tem Rodger Smitherman and House Majority Leader Ken Guin are in Washington to meet with President Obama and other national leaders.

The three-day trip was arranged by the National Conference of State Legislatures. It began Wednesday with a visit to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. It continues Thursday with other congressional leaders. The trip ends Friday with meetings with Obama, Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner and Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood.

A spokesman for Folsom, Chip Hill, says the lieutenant governor felt it was vital to get a firsthand briefing on economic recovery plans and the congressional agenda.
