Henry hopes stimulus will help state projects

Oklahoma City_Gov. Brad Henry is hoping any stimulus package put together by President-Elect Barack Obama will include money for highway and bridge projects in Oklahoma.

Henry will be among more than 40 of the nation's governors who will meet with the President-Elect on Tuesday in Philadelphia.  He says the economy will be foremost on the minds of the governors. He says Oklahoma officials already have compiled a list of road and bridge projects to do if a stimulus package directs federal construction funds to the states.

Henry also expects health care funding and energy issues to be discussed at the meeting.
