From the Marketplace Datebook, here’s a look at what’s coming up Thursday, May 1. (Really? It’s May already?)

In Washington, the Commerce Department reports on how much we earned and how much left our wallets in March. It releases its personal income and spending report.

Automakers are scheduled to release sales figures for April.

The Council of Chief State School Officers says Sean McComb, National Teacher of the Year, will be honored by President Obama tomorrow at the White House.

The Senate Energy & Natural Resourced Committee discusses the events that led to last winter’s propane crisis.

And it’s National Bike Month. It’s also National Salad Month. (Why don’t we just call it Get Ready for Swimsuit Season Month?)
