As if Mayor Nutter's plan to fix Philadelphia's property-tax system weren't complicated enough, state Rep. Michael O'Brien now says it would violate a Pennsylvania law. He dropped this bomb at a state hearing today on Nutter's Actual Value Initiative, or AVI.

City finance director Rob Dubow says the provision in question doesn't apply to Philadelphia.

At the hearing, state Rep. Rosita Youngblood also complained that Nutter doesn't talk to state lawmakers enough about AVI and other issues.
