(CNN) –- Republican governors are set to present President-elect Barack Obama with a list of key policy areas that they feel are vital to helping their states recover from the recent economic downturn at the annual National Governors Association meeting Tuesday.
"Today’s meeting represents an opportunity to come together and forge solutions to the current economic crisis,” said RGA Chairman Governor Mark Sanford. “It is important these solutions be based on the same common sense principles that have made America the economic envy of the world for generations.”
"We are committed as members of the RGA to working with the incoming Administration to make America more competitive in the global marketplace, and we believe the best route to strengthening America’s economy lies in focusing on things like lowering the tax burden on Americans, holding the line on spending, and bettering our business climate,” Sanford says.
The annual meeting takes place Tuesday at 10 a.m. ET in Philadelphia.
