WASHINGTON - Federal banking regulators moved Tuesday to seek public input on a plan to link the insurance premiums levied on U.S. banks to the degree of risk-taking encouraged by their executive pay policies.

China takes new steps to curb bank lending

BEIJING - China took new steps Tuesday to control bank lending, ordering institutions to set aside more reserves in a move to avert a surge in credit that Beijing worries might fuel inflation or asset price bubbles.

China's nascent rebound from the global crisis was fueled by a flood of lending by state-owned banks last year. Bankers cut lending under government orders toward the end of 2009 but regulators worry credit might rebound this year.

Parents seek to toss charges in girl's drug death

BROCKTON, Mass. - Parents accused of killing their 4-year-old daughter by overmedicating her with prescription drugs asked a judge Monday to dismiss murder charges, arguing that a new medical report by a prosecution expert supports their claim that the girl died of pneumonia.

Lawyers for Carolyn and Michael Riley said that because the grand jury that indicted the couple did not have the report, they were given "inaccurate" information on the cause of Rebecca Riley's death.
