WASHINGTON (AP) - Back from his fence-mending trip to Latin America and the Caribbean, President Barack Obama holds his first full White House Cabinet meeting on Monday.

The topic will be federal belt-tightening.

Obama will be asking each department and agency chief for specific proposals for trimming their budgets. He says families are having to make tough financial decisions and need to know the government is spending their money wisely, too.

Later in the day, the president will visit CIA headquarters in Langley, Va. The White House says the president will be holding private meetings with CIA employees and delivering a public message on the agency’s importance to national security.
