A Zig While We Were All Waiting For the Zag

A new development in the battle between Pittsburgh government and the city's nonprofits occurred earlier this week. Forget about taxing tuition or a fee for county services this is big news.
Legislation quietly introduced Tuesday in Pittsburgh City Council gives the city's nine lawmakers veto power over almost all new construction by big tax-exempt institutions -- effective immediately.
Can you imagine the State College Borough Council telling Graham and the boys in Old Main they can't build any new toys until they begin to pony up some more bucks? Wow!

A hat tip to the Pittsburgh Comet which has the inside baseball details on this move. It's a good read.
