Huckabee Stresses Health at Governors' Meeting

February 26, 2006 - Posted at 1:23 p.m. CST

UNDATED (AP) _ Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee picked health as

the theme of the National Governors Association winter meeting

that's going on this weekend in Washington, D-C.

Huckabee is chairman of the organization. Forty-nine of the

nation's governors are attending. And they are hearing about

initiatives that are familiar to people in Huckabee's home state.

Huckabee is using the forum to promote healthy lifestyles.

Huckabee says states would see their Medicaid bills actually

decrease if citizens would maintain a normal weight, get moderate

exercise and avoid tobacco.

Huckabee, who is considering a run for president, is to visit

New Hampshire on Tuesday.
