 Dear Mr. Lamb,

Thank you for committing the necessary resources to provide gavel-to-gavel coverage of the opening day of the historic House-Senate Conference on the Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act.  As we move forward, I urge you to provide the necessary resources to ensure that the American people are able to watch the public portions and the voting of the Conference Committee.  I believe it is vital that after the financial crisis of 2008, the American people are able to view the public proceedings.  I thank you for your consideration of my request.
