Trauner holds Cheyenne press conference on U.S. economic crisis

On Tuesday, Sept. 23, 10:30 a.m., Gary Trauner will hold a press conference at his Cheyenne office about the state of the economy and the current legislation to bail out Wall Street. Trauner is the Wyoming Democratic Candidate for U.S. House of Representatives. His downtown Cheyenne office is at 211 W. 18th St. You can dial into the press conference by calling 712-451-6100, key code: 721718#.

FMI: Adam Ruff at (307) 699-4956.

I'm sure that Trauner will be advocating that Congress include some sort of oversight into the legislation for the mega-billion-dollar bailout for Wall Street. Sen. Chris Dodd outlined his plan today, as did Rep. Barney Frank in the House.

Senator Chris Dodd (D-CT), Chairman of the Senate Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs Committee, will convene a hearing at 9:30 EDT tomorrow (7:30 a.m. MDT): “Turmoil in U.S. Credit Markets: Recent Actions Regarding Government Sponsored Entities, Investment Banks and Other Financial Institutions.” That's a mouthful. Expected at the hearing are Secretary of Treasury, Henry Paulson; Chairman of the Federal Reserve, Ben Bernanke; and Chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission, Christopher Cox. A live stream of the hearings will be available on C-SPAN until 1:30 p.m. EDT.
