    Lawmakers seek to block new restrictions on 'payday' lenders

    A group of lawmakers in the House, including several prominent Democrats, introduced a bill to block a rule that would make it harder for Americans to obtain short-term loans from "payday lenders. These lenders make money available at high interest rates to millions of customers who typically are poor or have shaky credit. The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau adopted a controversial rule last month that could put many payday lenders out of business or sharply curtail their businesses. The CFPB contends payday loans take advantage of borrowers and put them into deeper debt. Yet critics, including some Democrats, say the new CFPB rules go too far. In many cases borrowers unable to procure loans or cash checks at traditional banks would have no where else to turn if they could not go to a payday lender, critics contend.

    AIG no longer a threat to U.S. financial stability, FSOC says

    Shares of American International Group Inc. advanced in the extended session Friday after the Treasury Department's Financial Stability Oversight Council said the insurer no longer posed a threat to U.S. financial stability. AIG shares rose 1.7% to $62.45 after hours. The council voted six to three that AIG was no longer a risk to financial stability. Under the Dodd-Frank Act, the FSOC determined in July 2013 that "material financial distress" at AIG "could pose a threat to U.S. financial stability" and should be subject to supervision by the Federal Reserve.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

    FSOC discussed designation of a systemically important institution

    The Financial Stability Oversight Council said Friday it discussed the ongoing annual reevaluation of its designation of a nonbank financial company -- in all likelihood, a reference to American International Group , as media reports suggested the group of regulators would ahead of the meeting. The FSOC didn't say what, if anything, was decided. If the FSOC ruled that AIG was no longer a systemically important financial institution, the insurer would no longer be subject to federal oversight via the Federal Reserve. AIG was bailed out by the federal government during the financial crisis of 2008.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.
