Daily Briefing

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

The heavy rain this week is expected to continue, though flooding will not be as bad as what Irene brought last week, though it has resulted in some road closures.  Allentown was the home yesterday to one of the two state-wide redistricting hearings that will be held throughout the state.  PPL has unveiled an energy savings plan for small businesses.  A documentary on the Freddy Awards, "Most Valuable Players," will air on OWN, the Oprah Network.

In national news, Republican Presidential candidates debated yesterday in California.  This comes on the heels of a special address to Congress, by President Obama, in which he will unveil his jobs plan.  Meanwhile, a new report shows that businesses posted the most job openings in three years.

In Chamber-related news, we just taped another Business Matters on Gracedale, as noted in a story in the Express-Times.  We also have one event today - a free mixer at Haydenfilms Institute.

That's it for now!  Have a good one, and we'll be back with two more entries later today.
