"Use of these funds [is] tightly controlled," Bryant wrote, according to the filing.
Tropical Storm Ian grew overnight in the Caribbean still with a path that could bring it to Florida next week as a hurricane prompting Gov. Ron DeSantis to declare a state of emergency across the Sunshine State. The National Hurricane Center's 5 p.m. update puts Tropical Storm Ian's center about 230 miles south of Kingston, Jamaica and about 430 miles southeast of Grand Cayman with maximum sustained winds of 45 mph moving west at 14 mph. Tropical-storm-force winds extend out 60 miles. The long-term path has shifted since Saturday morning, though, so the NHC projects landfall farther north along Florida's Gulf Coast north of Tampa, although that projection is likely to continue shifting through the weekend, forecasters said.

South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem was returning from an official appearance in Rapid City in 2019 when she faced a decision: Overnight in the capital of Pierre, where another trip would start the next day, or head home and see her son attend his high school prom?

It's one of several trips that year where Noem, a potential 2024 White House contender, blurred the lines between official travel and attending either family or political events.

The Fed has told us that it had planned on not making the same mistakes of the late 1970s, where they raised rates but then eased off out of fear of creating a deep recession, only to have to raise rates again,” Stovall says. What the Fed is trying to avoid is to create a decade of economic choppiness. They want to be aggressive with the Fed funds rate now and corral inflation, so that we have either a V shape or at least a U shaped recovery rather than one that looks like a big W (to quote from 'It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World').
