Act 47 Recovery Plan Going Ahead (again)
According to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette: "In another surprising turnabout on Pittsburgh's budget, City Council today not only voted to approve spending cuts in the Act 47 recovery plan, but did so in a unanimous 9-0 vote."

Earlier this week a key council member had said he would change his vote from in support of the plan to opposition, which was previously assumed to be supported by a 1-member majority of the council. Two days of lobbying by the state's development secretary caused him to reverse his decision yet again, and apparently convinced the four other city-council members who had voiced opposition to the plan, which would privatize many key city services and has been compared to a structural adjustment program.
