Douglas joins other Governors eager to continue fighting the Medicaid cuts today.
Governors from across the country also plan to raise the issue of the nation’s infrastructure at a White House meeting with President Bush.
The governors have been debating priorities in case Congress takes up a second stimulus package. Some state leaders are pushing for federal money to repair roads, water systems and bridges.
