Reid Statement On Meeting With Paulson, Bernanke

Washington, DCSenate Majority Leader Harry Reid made the following statement today following a meeting this evening with Administration officials:

“At the Administration’s request, I met this evening with Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson and Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke.  They expressed the Administration’s views on the deepening economic turmoil and shared with us their latest proposals regarding AIG.  The Treasury and the Fed have promised to provide more details in the near future, which I believe must address the broader, underlying structural issues in the financial markets.”
