Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008

Lawmakers worked over the weekend and have released a bill on the economic stabilization/bailout/recovery/etc. (pick your preference). Here are some resources to read on the bill:
  • Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008 This is it. This is the bill that we have all been waiting to see and read. Remember the first version (see Wednesday's blog post), was only 3 pages, this version is 109.
  • President Bush's statement This is the text/audio/video release of the President's statement on the bill brought forth this morning.
  • Congressional Record Now I am guessing that most of you may not have heard of the Congressional Record, but it is a record of what is said on the House and Senate floor. If you want to see that back and forth discussion on this bill, in public, this is the place to go. It won't have the backroom discussions from this weekend, but I assure you some of the discussion will be repeated on the floor.
  • Wall Street Journal coverage Not everything from the Wall Street Journal is available for free online, but a lot on this topic is and as one of the leading financial newspapers in the US, it is a good place to go.
Still want more? Well, a little research is never amiss, why not check out the library's guides to Business and Economic Information.
