Posted on January 25, 2012

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) today released the following statement on Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke’s announcement regarding the Federal Reserve’s plan to expand its communication with the public:

“These are welcome and important steps toward openness. Letting the rest of us know more about what the leaders of the Federal Reserve Board and its banks are doing and why they are doing it should increase understanding of and build confidence in the Fed’s decisions. That, in turn, should encourage stability and prosperity in the American economy.”
