WASHINGTON (AP) — Gov. Mark Dayton is in Washington for the winter meeting of the National Governors Association.

Dayton is joining other Democratic governors on Friday morning for meetings at the White House. Later in the day he’s attending a meeting of the NGA’s executive committee, of which he is a member.

On Saturday, Dayton is participating in a session with the governors of Kansas and Missouri on how to encourage economic growth and entrepreneurialism in the states.

The afternoon meeting is scheduled to be broadcast live on C-Span. On Sunday he’ll participate in sessions on reducing health care costs and on the future of energy and natural resources.

Before he returns to Minnesota on Monday, Dayton will attend another White House meeting with President Obama and other governors.
