Daily Briefing, 1/13/2010

Good morning everyone!  Here is today's Daily Briefing on what was a slow, snowy news day yesterday.

In West Easton, Mayor Gross vetoed the Borough's budget, only to rescind when the Borough agreed to take a closer look at its spending.  Pennsylvania's AdultBasic Program, which provides health insurance to more than 40,000 low-income adults, appears set to end in the end of February, when the program runs out of money.  Governor-elect Corbett's office has said the program is unsustainable.  State Senators Anthony Williams and Jeff Piccola have introduced a plan to bring school vouchers to Pennsylvania.

In national news, President Obama spoke at a Tuscon memorial service in honor of the victim's of this weekend's shooting.  He also revealed some very good news: Congresswoman Giffords opened her eyes for the first time since the shooting.  More good news: AIG has announced that it expects to pay back the U.S. government the last of the money that it owes for the 2008 bailout.

We have one Chamber event today: a seminar on how to market your business' sale, promotion or initiative through Social Media.

That's it for now!  Have a great day, and we'll see you later.
