MADISON (WXOW) -- Gov. Scott Walker is preparing to attend the National Governors Association meeting starting Thursday in Williamsburg, Virginia.
The meeting brings together both Republican and Democratic governors from across the country.
Walker plans to attend meetings for the NGA's Education and Workforce Committee and the Health and Human Services Committee.
Walker has vowed to not to move forward with implementing the federal health care overhaul law, even though it was upheld as constitutional by the U.S. Supreme Court.
In a statement released Monday, Walker says, "As we work to help the private sector create jobs in Wisconsin, it is important to learn about other state's economic development initiatives."
Walker also said, "I look forward to telling other governors about Wisconsin's complete turnaround. After years of budget deficits, massive job losses and staggering wage decreases, we have a positive economic outlook, thousands of jobs have been created, wages have grown, and we have a projected budget surplus."
The meeting runs through Sunday.
