A year after canceling a scheduled meeting in Arizona because of a boycott, Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer plans to attend this year’s meeting in Mexico of governors of U.S. and Mexican border states.

Brewer’s office says in an announcement Friday that she will attend the Sept. 28-29 conference to be held in Ensenada, Baja California. Topics of discussion are to include economic development, border security and international ports of entry.

Brewer last year canceled a scheduled meeting of border governors in Arizona because Mexican governors planned to boycott the gathering to protest an Arizona illegal immigration law.

Mexican governors then attended a meeting held in New Mexico by then-Gov. Bill Richardson. Brewer did not attend that meeting.
