Daily Briefing, 4/24/2009

Good morning everyone! Here is today's Daily Briefing.

In state-wide news, the Morning Call runs a story on the political implications of the stimulus, noting that at least two gubernatorial candidates are getting involved and calling for more oversight of the funding.

In national news, President Obama's approval rating remains at 63% according to a survey released by the Pew Research Center. Obama's 100th day in office will be this Wednesday, and the President will acknowledge this milestone with the third prime-time press conference of his Presidency. The Treasury Department is apparently telling Chrysler to prepare for bankruptcy, possibly as soon as next week. Terms of the Chapter 11 declaration are still being worked out.

We have one Chamber event today: a mixer in College Hill for the Easton-Phillipsburg replay game.

Well, that's all for now. Have a great weekend and we'll catch you on Monday!
