Manchin, Other Governors to Meet with Obama

Gov. Joe Manchin travels to Philadelphia on Tuesday to discuss the nation's troubled economy with President-Elect Barack Obama and the nation's other governors, MetroNews reports.

"We're not necessarily asking for more federal dollars," Manchin spokeswoman Lara Ramsburg told MetroNews. "We get a lot of federal dollars for important things, but we don't get the flexibility to use them to the best of our abilities in our individual states."
