Our man in Harrisburg, John Baer, just caught up with Mayor Nutter, who spent the day in Harrisburg today on his quest for legislative authority to raise the city sales tax and extend payments into the city pension fund.

Nutter’s meetings included GOP state Rep. John Perzel as well as state Senators Shirley Kitchen, Anthony Hardy Williams and Vincent Hughes. Nutter said he met with members of the Philly delegation because it is important to "maintain a presence and supply information."

Nutter said that with the fiscal year beginning tomorrow, “this all becomes much more real, a little more intense and the consequences become more dire."

Nutter is looking for a temporary 1 cent increase to the city sales tax and some changes to how the city pays into the pension fund.
