Quinn in Washington for climate task force

Posted: Updated:

CHICAGO (AP) - Gov. Pat Quinn is in Washington, D.C., for another meeting of a federal task force on climate preparedness.

The Chicago Democrat's Wednesday schedule includes meetings with the heads of several federal agencies. According to a copy of Quinn's itinerary, those scheduled to attend included leaders of the Department of Housing and Urban Development, the Environmental Protection Agency and the Army Corps of Engineers.

President Barack Obama's Task Force on Climate Preparedness and Resilience was formed to advise the administration on how to respond to communities dealing with the impacts of climate change. Quinn has attended similar meetings in Los Angeles

A Quinn spokeswoman didn't immediately have details on the cost of the trip.

Quinn's one-day trip comes the same day a legislative commission is probing his troubled 2010 anti-violence program.
