BRASILIA (Reuters) - Brazil’s President Michel Temer said on Wednesday that states that seek debt relief from the federal government will be required to commit to austerity practices despite a bill passed by the lower house of Congress excluding fiscal commitments.

Temer did not say whether he has decided or not to veto the bill passed Tuesday night in a reversal for his plan to restore fiscal discipline in Brazil.
