Today's Lineup: Jobs Preview, Paulson, U.S. Chamber of Commerce

It's looking to be a busy morning in business news. This morning, at 8:15 am. the ADP Private Payroll Survey is released, which will give us a preview of the government's jobless claims report to be released later this week. The news is not expected to be encouraging.

Later this morning, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce holds a breakfast at the Hay-Adams Hotel (temporary home of the Obama family) on the state of American business. We'll provide a report from that.

And at noon, we will hear from Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson, who is scheduled to speak at the Economic Club of Washington about Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, providing an update on how they are trying to aid the housing market as they themselves are being reshaped by the federal government.

Check back here for live updates throughout the day.
