OKLAHOMA CITY – Gov. Mary Fallin will join governors from around the nation in Williamsburg, Virginia for the annual National Governors Association (NGA) meeting from July 12-15. Gov. Fallin serves on the executive committee of the NGA.
The NGA meetings will feature sessions on topics like health care, economic development, education and workforce as well as public safety, veterans’ affairs and homeland security. Throughout the meeting, governors will attend “Governors-Only” sessions, which provide an opportunity to discuss issues states are facing in a private, off-the-record setting.
“Economic growth and job creation are important priorities for the nation’s governors. Attending the NGA meetings offers me the chance to highlight the legislative successes in Oklahoma that are helping us create jobs and bring in new investment,” Fallin said. “These meetings also offer a chance to discuss ‘best practices’ on topics like health care, education and public safety in order to hear about ideas working in other states that may be applicable in Oklahoma.”
