For nearly a year, the quirky, ornate building at Chestnut and Juniper Streets in Center City has been undergoing a major restoration with plans to turn it into a co-working space with a ground-floor restaurant.

    Federal judges leave new Pa. congressional map in place for now - but fast-track hearings on it - Philly
    HARRISBURG - Republican efforts to block Pennsylvania's new map of congressional districts suffered a setback Friday, as a federal three-judge panel declined to issue an emergency order to prevent it from taking effect. Instead, they scheduled a hearing for March 9 here to consider arguments on whether they should block the maps from being used in the looming primary and general elections.

    Corporate tax cut squeezes funding for low-income housing - Philly
    Low-income housing tax credits, which are sold to banks and other investors, are the nation's biggest source of funding for affordable housing. The reduction in the federal corporate income tax rate has made them less valuable, which is expected to translate into an even bigger shortage of residences for low-income individuals.

    Pa. Republicans are talking about impeaching state Supreme Court justices. Do they have an argument? - Philly
    While it's unclear what grounds there may be for impeachment - there was some disagreement among constitutional law scholars interviewed - all said the legislature should refrain from the attack on the judiciary. Judges are usually impeached for criminal or corrupt behavior, they said, and they could not recall a time when a Pennsylvania judge had been impeached over a controversial ruling.

    Some 14 months ago, Philadelphia attorney Michael Coard declared war on a Philadelphia Parking Authority that, in his estimation, was a "vulture" victimizing residents and visitors to the tune of $12 million in faulty tickets. His call to abolish the PPA directly stemmed from a ticket he received in September 2015 for allegedly parking in a bus zone.

    PHILADELPHIA (CBS) - The city is seeking restaurateurs to run the food concession at the Love Park Welcome Center once it's renovated. The 1960s-era Welcome Center, also known as the spaceship, has been closed for years. But the city, last week, allowed a half dozen restaurant operators to tour the circular, bi-level building as they prepared proposals for the food and beverage concessions there.
