Daily Briefing, 7/14/2010

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

The Bangor Area School Board has appointed Frank Addessi to the board seat formerly occupied by Ron Angle after Angle was forced to resign.  An opinion from the Lehigh County solicitor found that Sheriff Ron Rossi likely did not violate any laws in charging $38 for gun licenses, despite a state law that sets the maximum charge at $25.  Table games will soon be a reality at the Sands this Friday; they opened yesterday at the Mount Airy Casino Resort.

A recent poll shows that voters disapprove of Governor Rendell by a 42-50% margin - and that this disapproval will likely weigh on Dan Onorato's bid for Governor.

A new poll shows that 71% of Americans think that the country is stuck in a recession, with 63% saying they believe that the country is on the wrong track.  But, there is some good economic news, as state revenues rose 2.5% in the first quarter of 2010, the first such rise in almost two years.

Today we have a very busy day at The Chamber, with three events:  an open house and presentation at the new Allentown Science Academy, the Greater Northern Chamber of Commerce's summer picnic and a review of the new health care law and how it will affect your bottom line.

That's it for now!  We will be back later today with a Tech Wednesday post.  Have a great day, and we'll see you soon.

Why no mention of Corbett?
The poll showed Corbett leads Onorato 44 percent to 37 percent. That’s up one percentage point from May, when Corbett led 43 to 37.
The poll also showed voters also believe Corbett is more likely than Onorato to reform Harrisburg and fix the state’s economy.
