OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) -- Gov. Chris Gregoire is in Washington, D.C, on her second trade mission to the nation's capital.

Gregoire, joined by a delegation of the state's business leaders and the state department of commerce director, met with federal policy and decision makers Tuesday to discuss credit issues, international trade, and education and work force training programs.

Gregoire met with the state's congressional delegation, as well as several members of the Obama administration, including former Washington governor and current Commerce Secretary Gary Locke.

Gregoire led a similar trade mission to Washington, D.C., in June with a delegation representing the state's agriculture industry.
