Daily Briefing, 6/29/2009

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

The Morning Call runs a story on the water restrictions that have been placed this year by the Lehigh County Authority, with the blame for the lack of water falling on the population explosion and other factors dating back to the mid-90s. Meanwhile, multiple Lehigh Valley communities are developing guidelines for a sudden expansion in solar projects that are becoming more and more popular.

Meanwhile, a historic energy bill passed the House of Representatives last week. The bill dramatically reduce carbon emissions in the U.S. by 2050, although many business advocates argue that the bill would hurt the U.S. economy. The bill now moves onto the Senate. And, here's some good news - gas prices haven't changed in two weeks - they have remained steady at $2.66 a gallon.

Business Matters airs tonight, and the topic is a discussion panel on a look at American voter apathy. The show airs at 8:00pm on WFMZ - meanwhile, check out the Business Matters blog for more information and to discuss the topic with others.

That's it! Have a great Monday and we'll see you later.
