Weekly Round Up of Articles

September 20, 2023

Hope everyone had a wonderful week.  There is a flurry of activity going on at Capital Hill and Congress works to avoid a government shutdown.  Congress would need to pass a spending bill or continuing resolution by the 30th of September or the government goes into shutdown.  In addition the Federal Reserve met this week and decided to leave rates at their current level and commented rates would remain elevated for an extended period of time.  Additionally it is believed that there will be one more rate hike this year. We wanted to share our weekly roundup of articles that can benefit or impact your planning outcomes.  If you have questions or concerns, please use the link below to schedule a time for a conversation.  Please also feel free to forward to anyone you believe might benefit.
