WASHINGTON — St. Louis Federal Reserve Bank president James Bullard late Monday emphasized that officials at the central bank have yet to decide on whether more action is needed to support the sluggish U.S. economic recovery, noting that the Fed has already implemented an aggressive monetary policy.

The policymaking Federal Open Market Committee meets Sept. 20-21, and “I have little doubt that, as always, an intense and spirited discussion about the course of future monetary policy will occur,” Bullard said in opening remarks at the St Louis Fed’s “Dialogue with the Fed: Beyond Today’s Financial Headlines.”
