President-elect Barack Obama is promising the country's governors that they will play a role in designing an economic recovery plan.

Obama says in remarks prepared for delivery to a governors meeting in Philadelphia that "if we're listening to our governors, we'll not only be doing what's right for our states, we'll be doing what's right for our country."

He also is sounding a bipartisan tone, telling Republican governors: "I offer you the same hand of friendship and cooperation that I offer our Democratic governors."

The meeting comes a day after the National Bureau of Economic Research announced that the U.S. economy has been in a recession for the past year.
