Daily Briefing, 3/31/2010

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

In what has been a relatively sleepy Democratic primary for Governor, the ad wars began yesterday, with Allegheny County Executive Dan Onorato becoming the first of the candidates to air TV advertisements.

Saturday mail could end as early as the beginning of 2011 according to Postmaster General John Potter.  The post office faces a deficit of $238 billion over the next decade.  If you have an iPhone, or if you have Verizon, here's a potentially huge story - a new report says that the iPhone may be available on Verizon at some point in the future.  Currently, the iPhone is exclusive to AT&T.  President Obama is set to announce the opening of previously closed areas to oil drilling.  Locations include off of the Virginia cost and the Gulf of Mexico.  CNNMoney.com runs a story on how cities, faced with budget crises', are looking to outside agencies to help them collect on bad debt.

We have one Chamber event today: a municipal update from Upper Saucon and Coopersburg.  This event was originally scheduled for 2/10 but was cancelled due to snow.

That's it for now!  We'll be back later today with our usual Tech Wednesday post.  Have a great day!
