Paid Sick-Leave Bill Now Ready For Mayor Nutter’s Veto

It kind of got lost in yesterday’s union shutdown of Mayor Nutter’s budget speech at City Hall, but the Council actually got some work done, passing a bill requiring Philly businesses to offer paid sick leave to their employees. A similar bill passed last year, 9-8, but was vetoed by the mayor. This year’s bill had more support—winning 11-6—but still fell short by one vote of the number needed to override the mayor’s probable repeat performance on the veto side. Nutter has until April 4 to veto the bill. [CBS Local]
