Governor Goes To Bean Town

Oklahoma City, OK – Henry departs on 6-day Boston trip

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) Gov. Brad Henry is in Boston for the annual meeting of the National Governors Association and a separate meeting of the newly created Council of Governors.

Henry spokesman Paul Sund says the governor will return to Oklahoma on Tuesday.

Henry is attending the National Governors Association meeting this weekend and then will meet with the Council of Governors, a 10-member panel created earlier this year by President Obama.

The council was set up to work with national defense and security advisers on matters pertaining to the National Guard, homeland defense and integrating state and federal military activities.

Sund says the costs of the trip are being paid with private funds from the Oklahoma Business Roundtable.
