ST. PAUL, Minn. (KNSI) Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton and six other governors meet today with President Barack Obama to discuss the fallout of Washington's search for a long-term debt fix.

Dayton joins Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker and governors from Delaware, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Colorado and Utah at the White House. Vice President Joe Biden is also participating.

Obama and a divided Congress have until the end of the month to head off across-the-board tax increases and automatic spending cuts. A recession is feared if they fail to reach a deal.

The deliberations over the so-called fiscal cliff are throwing state budgets into doubt. Minnesota is preparing for an economic forecast Wednesday that could become quickly outdated depending on what happens in Washington.
