Daniels attended a Sunday evening dinner with President George W. Bush and First Lady Laura Bush.

On Monday morning, the governor participated in the governor's only meeting with the president at the White House.

On Monday afternoon, Daniels spoke about policy innovations such as the Healthy Indiana Plan, Major Moves, telecom reform and the state's progress in economic development.
