The White House says Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner (GITE-nur) will visit Capitol Hill on Thursday to start outlining President Barack Obama’s plans to update financial regulations.

White House spokesman Robert Gibbs said Monday the administration hopes to have regulatory legislation in place by the end of the year. Gibbs says those regulations are important to help stabilize the global market.

When asked about the White House’s timetable for outlining its plan for financial regulations, Gibbs announced Geithner’s testimony.

Gibbs says he isn’t sure if Geithner would testify in the House or Senate. Geithner faces critics in both chambers.
