National meeting in Biloxi

Biloxi will host the National Lieutenant Governors’ Association conference in July 2010.

The city will also host the National Governors’ Conference starting July 17.

Mississippi Lt. Gov. Phil Bryant made the announcement Wednesday during the Airline and Tourism Development Summit in Biloxi.

Bryant says a focus of the conference will be renewal and recovery on a state level, both from natural disasters and economic challenges. He also hopes to take the lieutenant governors on a tour of Stennis Space Center.
