Governor Beverly Perdue is making another trip to Washington D.C. to ask for money. She was in the capital city Thursday to meet with President Barack Obama.

During Monday's trip, she plans to seek federal dollars that could improve the state's employment situation.

She plans to meet with U.S. Commerce Secretary Gary Locke to talk about using federal stimulus money to extend the reach of broadband Internet service to rural areas.

Perdue spokesman David Kochman said she's hoping to position the state to collect more recovery dollars.

Kochman said Perdue will meet with defense industry executives at a Washington conference, where she will highlight North Carolina's strength and potential for defense businesses.
