SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Utah Gov. Gary Herbert is in Washington for two days to meet with federal leaders about health care, public lands and natural resources issues.

Herbert's visit began Monday, where he was scheduled to meet with senior White House adviser Valerie Jarrett about health care.

While in Washington, Herbert also will meet with some members of Utah's congressional delegation, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich.

Herbert spokeswoman Angie Welling says Herbert plans to discuss wilderness fire issues with Interior Secretary Ken Salazar stemming from the Bureau of Land Management's role in managing southern Utah's Mill Flat fire this summer.

Herbert also will meet with Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack.
