From the Marketplace Datebook, here’s a look at what’s coming up Tuesday, June 17:

In Washington, the Labor Department releases the Consumer Price Index. It lets us know if consumers paid more or less for stuff in May than they did in April.

The Commerce Department tells us how many new homes were built in May.

The Federal Reserve begins a two-day meeting on interest rates. It’s one of eight regularly scheduled meetings for the year.

The Senate Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry Committee holds a hearing on creating jobs through bio-based manufacturing.

And start thinking about broccoli, beets and Brussels sprouts. Tuesday is Eat Your Vegetables Day. Don’t argue with me.
