PHILADELPHIA-  Following is the Administration’s response to the ruling in The Chamber of Commerce for Greater Philadelphia v. City of Philadelphia, et. al.  This can be attributed to Deputy Communications Director Mike Dunn.

“We are gratified by the Judge’s decision.  If the Chamber files an amended complaint that cures the standing defects identified by the Court, the City will adhere to its agreement not to enforce the order until the Chamber’s motion for preliminary injunction is resolved.  If no amended complaint is filed within the period stipulated by the Court, the City will begin taking steps to enforce the ordinance, which seeks to improve wage equity for women and minority workers in Philadelphia.”
