Good morning everyone, and a happy Monday to you. Here is today's Daily Briefing.
A study released by a consultant to Bethlehem has shown that major crime will not spike once the Sands Bethlehem opens in less than two weeks. The study also has given the police advice on how to deal with the casino when it does open. More good news for the Valley, as millions of dollars in a variety of construction projects are ready to be spent in the area. Meanwhile, a second case of the H1N1 virus has been reported in Lehigh County, although the victim has made a fully recovery.
There are two interesting pieces of news on the national scene today. First, President Obama will announce that he has come to a voluntary agreement with the heads of various health care agencies, as $2 trillion will be pledged to reducing health care costs. Next, the Justice Department will announce today that they will be reversing the former administration's policy on antitrust laws and will more aggressively enforce existing antitrust laws.
Business Matters airs tonight, and the topic is a one on one interview with the Speaker of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives, Keith McCall (D-122). The show will air tonight at 8:00pm, and you can discuss the show live over at the Business Matters blog.
That's it for now! Have a great day.
