LeVota To Meet With Obama

House Minority Leader Paul LeVota will represent the Show-Me State in a meeting with President Obama at the White House Friday.
More than 60 legislative leaders from both parties will attend the meeting, according to a House Democratic release and LeVota is the only Missouri lawmaker scheduled to attend.
The two-hour meeting, sponsored by the National Conference of State Legislatures, will include Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner and Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood.

"This will be a great opportunity to learn more of President Obama’s plans to revitalize the national economy and the role of our state in those plans," LeVota said. "As Missouri’s sole representative, I will express to the president the needs and challenges facing Missourians and the willingness of Democratic members of the General Assembly to assist the Obama Administration in ending the crisis," LeVota said in a statement.
