BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) _ Energy and transportation issues are expected to top the agenda as Vermont plays host to the 36th annual meeting of the New England governors and eastern Canadian premiers.

The regional leaders are to gather in Burlington for a day-long series of meetings on Monday.

During the morning, leaders will discuss strategies for development of renewable energy and deployment of more energy efficiency measures. Then their focus shifts to the potential for electric vehicles, both their impact on transportation and on the electrical grid.

In the afternoon, the governors and premiers will discuss transportation issues, and keeping cross-border transportation smooth in the post-9/11 age of heightened security.
