Feb. 25 (Bloomberg) — President Barack Obama and House Speaker John Boehner met at the White House today as lawmakers weigh the administration's call to revamp U.S. immigration law.

Boehner, an Ohio Republican, deflected most questions on the meeting as he walked back into the Capitol. "It was just fine," he said, without giving details.

White House spokesman Jay Carney said the two met for about an hour and discussed issues including immigration, trade promotion authority and California drought relief.
