Daily Briefing, 10/21/2011

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

The Bethlehem Area School District voted to end another bond swap.  Northampton County Council voted yesterday to accept a tax increment financing district that will create a new interchange at Route 33.

In national and international news, the big story yesterday was the death of Moammar Gadhafi, killed in the crossfire of an attack on his convoy.  In other news, it appears that European leaders will not be able to resolve their debt crisis by this weekend, as previously promised.  Republicans in the U.S. Senate successfully blocked a vote on a portion of President Obama's jobs bill yesterday.

We have two Chamber events today: Just Desserts in Bethlehem (YUM) and the Chamber's Healthcare Summit.

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