 Mayor Nutter's spokesman, Doug Oliver, says in an email that there's no final agreement yet with City Council on the budget, despite the apparent existence of a deal in principle on property and sales taxes.

"Nothing has been finalized," Oliver said. "There are still some moving pieces, and we're still talking with Council leadership. We're cautiously optimistic that we will find common ground and able to move forward with one voice."

Nutter is on his way to the National Constitution Center to testify during a U.S. Senate hearing on the 2010 census.
