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

In state-wide news, Tuesday is the last day to register to vote for the 2011 elections.  Governor Corbett is set to unveil his school voucher plan, likely at some point this week.  In national news, the economy added 103,000 jobs in September, but unemployment remained stuck at 9.1%. Gas prices across the nation have dropped to an average of $3.42 per gallon, a drop of $.12 in the past two weeks.  The Congressional Budget office found that the 2011 fiscal year ended with a budget deficit of about $1.3 trillion.  A new survey found that U.S. incomes kept falling after the recession supposedly ended.  In international news, Germany & France are close to an agreement on a variety of reforms & proposals that would cushion banks against a Greece default.

Business Matters airs tonight at 8pm on WFMZ - today's episode features a one-on-one interview with Allentown Mayor Ed Pawlowski.

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