PoliticsPA has a great breakdown of who crossed party-lines on the vote and their likely reasoning.
In national news, the House of Representatives voted against the two-month extension of the payroll tax-cut. Republican Presidential candidate Gary Johnson has announced that he will now seek the Libertarian Presidential nomination.
We have one Chamber event today: a joint East Penn/Western Lehigh lunch featuring the Parkland Charole.
