Philly Beverage Tax
The Commonwealth Court has expedited the appeal on the Philadelphia Beverage Tax ruling. Briefs will be due in February and March and oral argument will be scheduled in Pittsburgh during the Court’s April 3-7 session. Unless the Commonwealth Court rules otherwise, the Beverage Tax will remain in effect. PRLA has signed on to an amicus brief opposing the tax.
Commonwealth Court hears oral arguments on Pittsburgh's paid leave mandate
Oral arguments on the lawsuit filed against the City of Pittsburgh's paid leave mandate were held before the Commonwealth Court. PRLA continues to maintain that the paid leave mandate violates the city's Home Rule Charter and therefore cannot take effect. We expect the Court's ruling shortly.
