Bloomberg to Meet with Urban League Executives

ST. LOUIS (AP) _ New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is expected to detail his education plan for National Urban League executives today.

The civil rights group has said it is eager to hear presidential candidates' urban agendas during their conference that starts today
in St. Louis.

Bloomberg, a possible independent candidate for president, will make his remarks during a luncheon speech.

He has denied any plans to run, but recently switched from Republican to unaffiliated, clearing the way for a possible independent bid.

On Friday, four Democrat and two Republican presidential hopefuls will discuss ten of the Urban League's public policy recommendations that deal with jobs, housing, entrepreneurship and children. They are part of the League's ``Blueprint for Economic Equality.''
