'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

About 100 medium-sized banks will have to show how prepared they are to withstand a financial crisis next year, under a rule adopted Tuesday.

The Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. voted to require banks with $10 billion to $50 billion in assets to conduct yearly stress tests to assess their ability to withstand possible worsening economic conditions. The requirement is mandated by the 2010 financial overhaul law.

Two other regulatory agencies are expected to adopt the requirement. It takes effect in October 2013 and will affect about about 1.3 percent of all banks.

The 19 largest banks undergo annual stress tests conducted by the Federal Reserve.
