WASHINGTON D.C. (WTAQ) - Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker will be in a group of governors meeting with the President next week to talk about the so-called “fiscal cliff” looming at the end of the year.

The Republican leader announced Friday he will be in the White House Tuesday to discuss possible solutions and the issues the states might face is a deal isn’t reached.

The governors who are invited are all on the executive committee of the National Governors Association.

There is no deal so far between the Democratic president and Republican leaders of the U.S. House of Representatives.

A series of tax cuts are set to expire December 31st. Some experts say combining that with needed federal spending cuts could slow any economic recovery which might be going on right now.
