Daily Briefing, 2/17/2012

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

At a Chamber event yesterday, County Executive Don Cunningham delivered his State of the County address. Developer Abe Atiyeh is suing over the arena construction.  The Allentown NIZ zone will collect $550,000 in local taxes.  Bethlehem City Council was unable to select a new controller yesterday, as Council deadlocked on the vote.

In state-wide news, the primary ballot is now set.  Chances of a sale of the state's liquor stores took a blow yesterday, when two top State Senators said they would seek to make the existing system more competitive.  Same-sex marriage legislation was approved yesterday in New Jersey; Governor Christy is expected to veto it.

In national news, bad news: oil prices have rose 12% in six weeks.  There was, however, good news to counter it: jobs and manufacturing data both made improvements.

We have one Chamber event today: our Small Business Council is holding a networking event.

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