Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner and other top officials are putting the finishing touches on a plan to overhaul the government's $700 billion financial rescue program.

A Treasury official says Geithner will deliver a speech on Monday outlining the new plan.

Geithner met Thursday with the top officials who will play a role in implementing the effort, including Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke and the heads of the federal government's major bank regulatory agencies.
