  • The Trump administration is asking Congress to authorize a $29 billion disaster relief package for costs associated with 2017’s Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria.
  • In a 6-3 vote, The Financial Stability Oversight Council (FSOC) rescinded its determination that American International Group (AIG) is a systemically important financial institution (SiFi).
