    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.
