Sen. Rod Grams, chairman of the Subcommittee on Securities, has announced that on Wednesday, May 26, the subcommittee will hold a hearing on the private sector's voluntary initiative to provide more transparency in the corporate bond market. The hearing will include a demonstration of Corporate Trades 1, the program being developed by the Bond Market Association to provide more information about bond transactions.
