The hearing will also feature testimony from Illinois Senior Assistant Attorney General Thomas James and University of Wisconsin--Madison consumer science professor J. Michael Collins, among others. Fed Governor Elizabeth Duke will also be in attendance. The Sept. 16 hearing is based in Chicago, and follows recent hearings in Atlanta and San Francisco. A fourth hearing will be held on Sept. 24 in Washington, D.C.
