Daily Briefing, 9/21/2011

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

In local news, Macungie Mayor Rick Hoffman said at a Borough Council meeting that he believes it is time to "move on" from his dispute with the Borough's Police Department.  In state-wide news, a new report shows that revenue generated from Pennsylvania casinos is slowly growing.  In national news, a new poll shows that confidence in the economy is rapidly declining, with eight in ten of those surveyed saying the economy is in a recession and six in ten saying the economy will be about the same or worse at this time last year.  Republican Congressional leaders wrote the Federal Reserve this past week, urging them not to further intervene in an effort to kick-start the sputtering economy.  Executives of the failed solar energy company Solyndra will testify before a hearing at the House of Representatives, where they will plead the 5th amendment.

We have one Chamber event today, and its a good one: our 2nd annual Celtic Kick-Off, to be held at the site of the Celtic Fest.

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