DAILY GUIDANCE AND PRESS SCHEDULE FOR
THURSDAY, APRIL 22, 2010

In the morning, the President will travel to New York City, where he will deliver remarks at Cooper Union reminding Americans what's at stake in the push to reform Wall Street and how the bill in the Senate draws on ideas from both sides of the aisle. The President will urge Wall Street to join him in the effort to reform the financial system -- not fight it -- and to lean on Washington to pass the tough Wall Street reform bill in front of the Senate that protects consumers, ends Too Big to Fail and brings transparency to the derivatives market. This event is pooled for TV and open to pre-credentialed correspondents and still photographers. The deadline to request credentials has passed.

The President will return to Washington, DC in the afternoon. The arrival on the South Lawn is open press.

Later, the President will meet with Secretary of the Treasury Tim Geithner in the Oval Office. This meeting is closed press. In the evening, the President will deliver remarks at an Earth Day reception in the Rose Garden. This event is pooled press.
