Lobbying lawmakers, Nutter sleeps in Harrisburg

Mayor Nutter slipped out of Philadelphia yesterday - and stayed the night in Harrisburg. He's roaming the Capitol hallways again today.

Spokesman Doug Oliver says Nutter left Philadelphia about 1 p.m. yesterday, a few hours after holding a news conference in Northeast Philadelphia about the devastating budget decisions he might be forced to make if the General Assembly does not approve a city sales tax increase and pension changes, including a two-year delay in city payments into the fund.

In fact, the House is poised to vote on those changes - House Bill 1828 - today. But as the Inquirer reports, the Senate is, for the moment, unwilling to take any similar action until a state budget agreement is reached.

No word yet on exactly who Nutter is visiting today, or what his agenda otherwise entails.
