OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin told the 2014 winter meeting of the National Governor's Association in Washington, D.C., that governors are reforming education, building infrastructure, improving health care and developing energy resources while the federal government is "mostly gridlocked."
Fallin is chairman of the NGA and spoke to the group Saturday during its meeting in Washington.
Fallin -- a Republican and a former U.S. representative from Oklahoma -- said the federal government needs to allow states flexibility to solve what she calls "the unique needs" of residents of each state.
The NGA's Winter Meeting runs through Monday.
