City Council has been on winter break for seven weeks, but they're back and ready for action. Or at least for filing some bills. Our Council Report Card is back too, with a weekly look at the top bills introduced in City Council. You can track the status of prior bills we've written about here.
One quick note: this week's Report Card contains bills introduced last Thursday, so they're about a week old. We'll have the latest bills up early next week.
Last week, Cherelle Parker (9th District) introduced a bill exempting stepchildren from the city's portion of the Realty Transfer Tax; David Oh (At-Large Republican) introduced another tax credit nobody's going to use; and Bobby Henon (6th District) introduced a bill for Council President Darrell Clarke to hold a hearing on the possible impacts of the Trump administration and state political shifts on Philadelphia's fiscal health.
