Council’s attempt to override the veto will not come until next week, if at all.
With Philadelphia’s jobless rate in double digits, a City Council committee has okayed significant changes to the city’s business tax structure — and Mayor Nutter is on board as well.
This bill, approved by a 15-2 vote, applies only to companies that win large contracts with the city. Mayor Nutter vetoed an earlier version.
The original bill requiring earned sick leave covered all Philadelphia businesses, but now Councilman Bill Greenlee has amended it to exclude small firms.
