Marketplace Morning Report®

with David Brancaccio

Marketplace Morning Report for Monday, September 10, 2012

Summer is officially over for members of the U.S. Congress who return to session today. But don't expect a lot to come from Capitol Hill over the next several weeks before election day. Despite looming deadlines around the Farm Bill and the so-called "Fiscal Cliff." Also on the show, the capital of Vermont is getting into the utility business - piping wood-fired heat from a state building to local businesses. And Marketplace's David Gura examines news today that the U.S. Treasury Department plans to sell $18 billion shares of AIG stock in a public offering that would reduce its stake by more than half.
