Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn will spend the next two days with other governors from around the country. Quinn's office said he's spending today and tomorrow at the annual meeting of the National Governors Association in Virginia. Much of the meeting will be devoted to the economy and what states can do to help businesses grow. Quinn is supposed to lead a session on innovative Medicaid strategies. Illinois slashed Medicaid services this year and raised cigarette taxes to balance the health program's budget. The Chicago Democrat also says he'll meet with foreign delegations and a Commerce Department executive.
