#AceNewsReport – Sept.24: The German government has agreed to make a one-off payment of €4.1 billion ($4.6 billion) next year, to help its 16 regional states cope with a record influx of refugees, Reuters reports, citing a source from one of states.

Chancellor Angela Merkel was meeting the heads of the regions to discuss other ways of helping them ease the burden. Germany expects 800,000 asylum seekers to arrive in the country this year.

Some lawmakers have questioned whether it will be possible to achieve a balanced budget this year and in 2016, given the rising costs.
