FILE - This Sept. 18, 2013 file photo shows the Federal Reserve headquarters in Washington. Minutes of the Fed's discussion at its July 29-30, 2014 meeting show that some officials thought the economy was improving enough that the Fed would need "to call for a relatively prompt move" toward reducing the support it has been providing. Otherwise, they felt the Fed risked overshooting its targets for unemployment and inflation. (AP Photo/J. David Ake, File)
