Daily Briefing, 12/20/2011

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

In Easton, members of the Greater Easton Development Partnership have vowed to keep the Main Street and Ambassadors programs running despite the fact that the Neighborhood Improvement District, or NID, was voted down.  Bethlehem Township approved its budget yesterday; the budget keeps taxes steady.

In state-wide news, the State House shot down a Democratic redistricting map; a final vote on the Republican version of the map is expected today.

In national news, AT&T has dropped its bid to purchase T-Mobile.  House Republicans will vote today on a Senate bill to extend the payroll tax for two months after Speaker Boehner came out in opposition to the plan.

And that's it for now!  See you later today.
