Philadelphia City Council returns for fall session

Philadelphia City Council returns for fall session

Philadelphia City Council reconvened Thursday for the first time since June. The body passed some resolutions and localized ordinances in their briefer than average return to session.
 
The session was the first of six weekly meetings before the city’s general election in November. 14 of the 17 members will be on the ballot; some without challengers. Two at-large seats will be up for grabs following retirements, while Councilmember Jannie Blackwell (D-District 3) lost her spot in a stunning primary upset in May.

House Commerce discusses business innovation, entrepreneurship at Temple University

House Commerce discusses business innovation, entrepreneurship at Temple University

In their last week before heading back to the Capitol for fall session, members of the House Commerce Committee went back to school. Legislators joined program leaders and professors at Temple University’s Fox School of Business to find out about the school’s efforts to promote new businesses and entrepreneurs.
 
Presentations, a facilities tour, and lunch helped educate committee members about the programs available through Temple’s business school and how they help students and community members start their own companies. Not only do these start-ups help create jobs and return tax revenue to the state, they tackle social problems and positively impact their neighborhoods and cities.
