Bill

Editor's note: We are tracking now-Tropical Depression Bill, which forecasters say will pose a significant flood threat for days as it moves northeast toward the Midwest. There are flood warnings for the Austin area this morning, and the storm is on a track to bear down on Dallas with 35-mph winds later in the day. In the Middle East, @AFP is reporting on the dissolution of the Palestinian unity government after continued disagreement over operations in the Gaza Strip. We'll watch for official word from key players there. And in U.S. politics, at 11:15 a.m. ET President Obama formally welcomes new Attorney General Loretta Lynch to her post in a White House ceremony, before hosting members of Congress and their families for an annual picnic on the South Lawn in early evening. It will be the first time the president interacts with many of the lawmakers in his own party who voted against his trade legislation last week. - Tricia
