Janet Yellen faces lawmakers as Biden officials grapple with inflation

WASHINGTON—Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen will face lawmakers this week as she and the Biden administration come under scrutiny over high inflation and how they solved it.

Ms. Yellen will appear before the Senate Finance Committee on Tuesday and the House Ways and Means Committee on Wednesday to discuss the administration’s annual budget request. With inflation above 8% on an annual basis, the highest rate in four decades, she is also expected to face questions about rising prices, which the Biden administration says is her top economic priority.
