Stories we’re working on today

By Michael J. Dowd, BDN Staff

Here are some of our coverage plans for the day.

This feature is an opportunity for you to comment on our coverage choices, suggest sources, ask questions or share your knowledge in order to help us keep everyone better informed. We call it “The Daily News Meeting” because the list is generated from the 10 a.m. planning meeting BDN editors conduct each weekday.

Keep in mind that due to the uncertainties of reaching sources and the need to cover breaking news every story listed may not be published today.
