Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras (left) is greeted by European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker ahead of talks in Brussels, on June 24, 2015European Commission chief Jean-Claude Juncker set out a possible "last-minute" solution to Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras to reach a debt deal before a bailout referendum, a Commission source said Tuesday. Juncker told the Greek premier that a deal would involve accepting reform proposals that Greece's EU-IMF creditors made at the weekend and backing a "yes" vote in Sunday's plebiscite, another EU source said. "Tsipras would have to send a letter to Juncker, Dijsselbloem, Merkel and Hollande in which he accepts the proposal of the three institutions from Saturday (and) committing to a 'yes campaign' on this basis," the source said.

FILE - In this July 1, 2013, file photo, smoke rises from the Colstrip Steam Electric Station, a coal burning power plant in in Colstrip, Mont. A divided Supreme Court on Monday ruled against the Obama administration’s attempt to limit power plant emissions of mercury and other hazardous air pollutants, but it may only be a temporary setback for regulators who will have another chance to get the process right. The justices split 5-4 along ideological lines to rule that the Environmental Protection Agency failed to take cost into account when it first decided to regulate the toxic emissions from coal- and oil-fired plants. (AP Photo/Matthew Brown, File)BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) — Coal companies and their supporters scored a courtroom victory with a U.S. Supreme Court decision that said the Obama administration failed to take potential costs into account when it decided to regulate toxic emissions from many power plants.

Greece's banks might not be declared insolvent for several days after a default, a European Central Bank supervisor said, offering the prospect of some temporary breathing room in the runup to a referendum. The remarks by Felix Hufeld, who heads German banking watchdog Bafin and sits on the ECB's banks supervisory board, underline the gravity of the situation facing Greece's banks immediately after a missed payment to the International Monetary Fund and an end of its bailout programme. Asked how long Greek banks could hold out were the country to miss a 1.6 billion euro ($1.8 billion) payment to the International Monetary Fund on Tuesday, Hufeld said they could be considered solvent for up to five days.
