Treasury Secretary Lew Meets With Boehner, Pelosi

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Treasury Secretary Jack Lew is meeting separately on Friday with House Speaker John Boehner and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi.

That's according to three sources briefed on the meetings, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly on the issued.

While on Capitol Hill, Lew is expected to update the House leaders on the state of the economy, both in the U.S. and abroad. Lew is home from a tour of Europe, where he encouraged officials to promote more growth-friendly policies rather than focusing on austerity measures.

The meetings come after Lew told House and Senate committees the Obama administration is optimistic about a budget deal. He urged lawmakers to consider concessions that President Barack Obama made in the budget he unveiled Wednesday.
