WASHINGTON, July 15 (Reuters) - The U.S. House of Representatives Financial Services Committee said on Monday it would release Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke's prepared testimony on monetary policy on Wednesday at 8:30 a.m. (1230 GMT).

The testimony will be prepared for delivery to a semi-annual hearing on monetary policy and the economy that begins at 10 a.m. (1400 GMT).

The early release of the testimony is a departure from prior practice; the committee said it was taking the step to allow members of the committee to review the testimony before the hearing begins.
