Tomorrow, a panel including two economic experts and two speakers from the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis will speak at the Humphrey Institute. The group will discuss how Congress passing the $700 billion bailout may affect state and local economies. Jay Kiedrowski, a senior fellow at Humphrey and former Wells Fargo executive, Minnesota Commissioner of Finance, and budget director for the City of Minneapolis will moderate the discussion, which will occur from 4-5:30 p.m. and followed by an audience question and answer session. The event is free to the public, but registration is required by phone at (612) 625-5002. Josh Katzenstein Business Reporter
