Daily Briefing, 7/31/2010

Good morning everyone, and welcome to the last day of July!  Can you believe that the summer is almost halfway over already?  Anyway, here is today's Daily Briefing.

A photograph from the Troy Fair in Bradford County appears to show Corbett campaign material at an official booth from the Office of Consumer Protection.  The Attorney General's office has said that they discovered the material there was then arrived and removed it immediately.  There was good news for National Penn, the parent company of KNBT, as their losses shrank during the 2nd quarter of 2010.  The Borough of Nazareth is now considering enacting a hand-held cell phone ban.  The Pennsylvania Supreme Court has thrown out an appeal by Ron Angle that Angle was seeking to allow him to hold two elected offices simultaneously. 

In national news, U.S. Congressman Charles Rangel (D-NY) was charged yesterday with 13 counts of violating House rules and federal ethics laws by a Congressional ethics panel.  A new report shows that state debt climbed 10.3% last year.

In Chamber news, in case you missed it, The Chamber has partnered with Public Power to unveil a new residential electricity program that can save you money.  For more information, contact Lanita Lum at lanital@lehighvalleychamber.org.

That's it for now!  We'll have a guest blog entry by our guru of networking, Bob Friedman, later today.  Enjoy your weekend!

"The Attorney General's office has said that they discovered the material there was then arrived and removed it immediately."
