City's rejection of recovery plan is a Pa. first
Harrisburg's rejection of financial recovery plan is first under Pa. distressed city law
By The Associated Press

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) ' Pennsylvania's capital city has rejected a recovery plan, the first time that has happened in the 24-year history of a state law designed to help financially distressed cities.

A spokesman for the Gov. Tom Corbett's administration said Wednesday that the law takes into account the potential for such a rejection and that the process continues to move forward.

Harrisburg's city council voted Tuesday night to reject the plan, 4-to-3. Before Harrisburg, more than two dozen Pennsylvania municipalities have entered the program.

Mayor Linda Thompson now has 14 days to write a recovery plan. It must be approved by council and the Corbett administration or state aid can be cut off. The law doesn't specify a timeframe for council to consider it.
