From the Marketplace Datebook, here’s a look at what’s coming up Wednesday:

  • In Washington, the Treasury department is scheduled to issue its monthly statement for January.
  • The Senate Special Committee on Aging teams with the Senate Committee on Small Business and Entrepreneurship to discuss entrepreneurship among seniors.
  • And President Abraham Lincoln was born on February 12, 1809. Got a penny? Flip it over to the reverse side where you’ll see the Lincoln Memorial. That design was put in place in honor of the former president’s 150th birthday.
