MILWAUKEE (AP) â€” The nation's governors have a warning for President Barack Obama and Congress: A fiscal standoff in Washington this fall could be catastrophic.

That was the message as two dozen governors gathered in Milwaukee for their annual three-day summer conference. Their meeting opens on the same day Congress is leaving Washington for a five-week break with key work unfinished.
The fast-approaching fiscal showdown hung over the meeting on the shores of Lake Michigan in swing-voting Wisconsin.
