Bolling heads to Mississippi for oil spill briefing, national meeting

Anita Kumar

When Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling, chairman of the National Lieutenant Governor's Association, flies to Biloxi, Miss., this week for the group's annual meeting, he will get a first-hand look at the impact of the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

The conference planned more than a year ago, titled "Recovery, Rebuilding and Renewal," was to focus on emergency management but has taken on a new meaning in the face on the Deep Horizon accident.

The lieutenant governors will hear from state officials and be offered a site visit as well as participate in several other days of meetings and events. The full schedule can be found here.

Virginia taxpayers will pick up the tab for Bolling and Deputy Chief of Staff Mike Hardy. Cost for commercial airfare and hotel is about $2,500, according to Bolling's office. His wife, Jean Anne, will also travel with him but will pay her own way.
