Daily Briefing, 9/27/2010

Good morning everyone!  I hope you had a great weekend, and welcome back to work.  Here is today's Daily Briefing.

In political news, the Morning Call runs election profiles on Pat Toomey and Joe Sestak.  An Express-Times story notes the funding difficulties faced by local libraries as a result of state cuts, forcing many to further limit their hours and services.  Congrats to Chamber members WFMZ-TV and WLVT PBS 39, who both took home Mid Atlantic Emmy Awards yesterday.

In national news, President Obama will be signing into law a $42 billion bill designed to assist small businesses.  Meanwhile, a new poll shows that 74% of Americans believe we are still in a recession.  Meanwhile, a vote on whether or not to extend the Bush tax cuts will now come after the November elections.

Business Matters airs today, featuring a very lively discussion on Race and Politics in America.  The show airs tonight at 8pm on WFMZ-TV.

And let's conclude on a very positive note: the Phillies clinched a playoff spot yesterday.  Woohoo!

Have a great day!  We'll see you later.
