Gov. Bob Riley will take the reins of the Southern Governors' Association from Virginia Gov. Tim Kaine when they and other governors meet in Williamsburg, Va. this weekend.
Riley said he plans to lay out a platform of economic development for the South as a region and talk about how to brand the South as a place that international corporations want to bring their business.
He said there also was a need to address issues at the federal level such as cap and trade that will have a negative impact on the South's economic future.
