Daily Briefing, 10/17/2011

Good morning everyone, and we hope you had a good weekend!  Here is today's Daily Briefing.

Tax collection changes are coming to the Valley, as state law requires that all counties use a single agency to collect local income tax.  There is good news in the housing market, at least locally, as home sales rose 20% compared to the same time last year.  In state-wide news, Pennsylvania will start asking residents to report sales tax on purchases they made on the Internet (and other out of state purchases).  In national news, President Obama and others dedicated the new Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial in Washington, D.C.

Business Matters airs tonight, featuring a look at what Northampton County will do with Gracedale, now that the referendum stopping the sale has passed.

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