Jindal skipping national governors meeting

Gov. Bobby Jindal isn't joining the nation's governors at a meeting this weekend in Virginia and is instead scheduled to speak at the Nebraska Republican convention.

Jindal spokesman Kyle Plotkin said Friday that the Republican governor won't attend the National Governors Association annual meeting, which is focused on job creation and economic development.

Plotkin didn't answer a question about why Jindal decided against attending the meeting.

Nebraska news outlets have reported that Louisiana's governor is on the list of scheduled speakers for the Nebraska GOP meeting on Saturday.
