LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) _ Governor Sebelius and three other Democratic governors say they're frustrated about a lack of federal action on immigration reform. Sebelius says immigration reform can't be solved a state at a time.

She spoke Thursday at the Clinton School of Public Service in Little Rock, Arkansas.

She appeared along with Arizona Governor Janet Napolitano, Arkansas Governor Mike Beebe and Tennessee Governor Phil Bredesen.

The governors say they are left to come up with their own plans to combat immigration after the failure of President Bush's immigration reform proposals earlier this year in Congress.

The governors also called for a spending increase for the State Children's Health Insurance Program, which is set to expire September 30.
