    Philadelphia DA Larry Krasner: Stop overspending on prisons and put the money in schools instead.
    For the last three decades, Larry Krasner has seen America's criminal justice system take its toll on prisoners - all at exorbitant cost to taxpayers. "[I had] been in court for 30 years before I got silly and decided to run for DA," Krasner, the district attorney for Philadelphia, said in an interview.

    The Art Deco masterpieces of Philadelphia, mapped
    Philly isn't often recognized for its Art Deco architecture, compared to other cities like New York, Miami, or Chicago, but it should be. The city has some stunning examples of the flashy style, which originated from Europe and hit the U.S. full force in the 1920s and 1930s.

    Changes to Philly construction tax break under review
    With the spring City Council session coming to an end, reform of Philadelphia's controversial 10-year property tax abatement emerged as a live issue on Thursday. The 18-year-old development incentive waives property taxes on increased real-estate values generated through new construction or renovations.

    Updated 5:30 p.m. with a second map that has additional filtering tools Since the beginning of April, many Philly residents have opened their mail to find an envelope full of sticker shock. The city just rolled out new property assessments - officially called " Proposed Valuations for Tax Year 2019" - and while some home values decreased, many went significantly up.

    A measure that would require developers to build more parking along with new housing got a major haircut in City Council on Wednesday. The mandatory parking minimum bill revised by the council's Rules Committee bears little resemblance to the far more significant reform proposed in Councilwoman Jannie Blackwell's original bill.

    SEPTA's 2019 budget funds new buses and trains but plans for drop in ridership revenue
    SEPTA's operating budget will stay relatively flat for the coming fiscal year, while the capital budget includes a lot of money for vehicles and additional funding for the smart fare card that continues its rollout across the region. Both budgets were approved at SEPTA's monthly board meeting Thursday.

    CLS blames TAP's failure to reach more people on a slow and cumbersome enrollment process. For the first group of residents approved for the program last year, nearly half had to wait two months or longer from the time they applied until they were enrolled, according to an analysis by Roger Colton, a Massachusetts-based utility finance expert who is consulting for CLS.
