Here's your daily look at five stories we're following:

1. Sandusky report: Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane is set to release her report on the Jerry Sandusky investigation today. The report reportedly raises questions about some decisions and delays in the investigation, but doesn't fault prosecutors for using a grand jury or taking the time to develop their case with several victims.

2. Female business owners: Thousands of female businesses owners are gathering in Philadelphia beginning today for the 15th annual Women's Business Enterprise National Council National Conference and Business fair, the nation's largest coference for women who run businesses.

3. Sandy aid bill: New Jersey state senators are attempting to override Gov. Christie's conditional veto of a Superstorm Sandy "Bill of Rights" measure proposed by Democratic legislators concerned about the state's procedures and requirements for distributing aid.

4. Rittenhouse rape: Police have released video surveillance of a suspect who followed a woman to her Rittenhouse Square apartment and sexually assaulted her. Women who live in the area have called the attack a wake-up about safety concerns.

5. Celebrity softball: Today's Bombers Boomer Broadway Softball Classic at Yankee Stadium features a long list of celebrities playing for charity, including Broadway performers, New York Yankees alumni and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie.
