Daily Briefing, 8/4/2010

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

Governor Rendell was in Allentown yesterday, speaking about the need to increase transportation funding in Pennsylvania.  On the South Side of Bethlehem, 91 new streetlights have been installed.  In the race for the 134th State Representative District, independent Carl Stevenson has filed to run.  Stevenson faces incumbent Doug Reichley (R) and Patrick Slattery (D).

Slots revenue broke records in the state during the month of July, rising almost 25% compared to July of 2009.  The increase is attributed to the introduction of table games.

A panel of economists spoke in front of the Senate Budget Committee yesterday, saying that the recovery will continue - but at a very slow pace.

We have one Chamber event today and it's a fun one - our Amore Wine Tasting Mixer in Nazareth.

That's it for now!  Have a great day.
