WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama plans to meet separately Wednesday with House and Senate Democrats to discuss upcoming challenges on issues like the economy and the rollout of Obama’s health care law.

That’s according to several Democratic officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the meetings haven’t been publicly announced.

Obama will meet Wednesday morning with House Democrats, then head to the Senate. Officials say it’s a chance to debrief before lawmakers head home for the August congressional recess.

The meetings come as Obama and lawmakers are girding for fall battles over testy fiscal issues, including federal spending levels and an increase in the nation’s debt ceiling.

Obama started pressing anew his economic agenda this week in speeches in three states. He’s traveling Tuesday to Tennessee to continue spotlighting economic issues.
