Transcripts of the monetary policymaking body of the Federal Reserve from 2002–2008.

As far as the statement now goes, the way I would phrase it is that I can live with what we have. If I may anticipate President Minehan just a little bit, I would like to see it simpler and shorter as we go forward, especially if we can move the minutes closer to the meeting date as we discussed here earlier. That would enable us to do that. That’s my first comment. On the governance, I think the way we do it right now is fine. If we are going to have the statement as it is now structured, the process seems to be working, and I don’t see any need, again, to vote on it.
