Governors from Around the South Converging on Little Rock

LITTLE ROCK, AR - LITTLE ROCK, AR - The Southern Governor's Association consists of 16 southern governors.

Governor Mike Beebe tomorrow will talk more about Arkansas' decision to pass compromise Medicaid expansion, also known as the private option.

As a result, nearly 200,000 more Arkansans have health coverage.

Beebe says this weekend and this particular group, really helps several states when it comes time to deal with D.C.

"Governor's, whether they are republicans or democrats face the same problems and usually see eye to eye on most issues, obviously there are some we all don't see eye to eye on. But in our relationship with the Federal

Government, in our relationship with the White House, the administration and certainly Congress, we can speak with one voice," said Governor Beebe.

Only a handful of governor's are actually in attendance this weekend.
