Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm says the state needs help from the federal government. Granholm is in Washington D.C. to meet with congress and President Bush.
Granholm and the 49 other governors are in Washington this week looking for solutions to the financial problems Michigan and most states are enduring.
It's Granholm's first National Governor's Association meeting. She says she is learning how other states are dealing with deficits and declining tax revenues. She is also looking at ways congress and the President can help.
Among Granholm's top priorities at the meeting are cutting the cost of health care and early childhood education.
