Daily Briefing, 10/26/2011

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

First, some Allentown related news.  Guidelines were passed to determine when financial aid could be offered for development related to the Arena project.  Associated Builders & Contractors is suing the City of Allentown, saying that its recently passed Project Labor Agreement violates the law.  A developer has offered the Lehigh-Northampton Airport Authority $18 million for the development of Queen City airport.  In Whitehall, an audit has showed that the Township finished 2010 $700,000 in the red.  In Easton, Mayoral Candidates Sal Panto (D) and Mike Krill (R) debated at the State Theatre.

In state-wide news, the Pennsylvania Senate approved the use of red-light cameras in 19 Pennsylvania cities.

In national news, tear gas was used on Occupy Oakland protesters yesterday.  President Obama will issue an Executive Order that will help former students pay down student loans.

And that's all we have for now!  Have a great day, and we'll be back later.

Is the Chamber supporting the ABC on this lawsuit? If not, they should. The legislation is a job crusher in that it will restrict many contractors from the work, and it makes the project costs higher which is a whammy on the taxpayers.
