Fed’s Greenspan Senate appearance set for July 21

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Federal Reserve Chairman Alan
Greenspan will deliver his closely watched semi-annual
testimony on the U.S. economy to the Senate Banking Committee
on July 21, the panel said on Thursday.

The hearing is set to begin at 10 a.m. (1400 GMT).

Greenspan does two such two-day stints on Capitol Hill each
year -- in February and July -- and his Senate panel appearance
will be the second planned for this month. He is scheduled to
appear before the House of Representatives Financial Services
Committee on July 20.
