Budget in council's lap

Tony gets it right. Well done!
PittsburghLIVE.com On the revenue side, the revised budget adds an additional 0.5 percent to the city's 1.5 percent realty transfer tax -- an increase of 33.3 percent.

The mayor's revised budget is technically balanced by a proposed 34 percent increase in property taxes. However, Murphy has vowed not to impose such a steep hike on city residents, calling it 'suicidal for our city.'
