Earlier this month, Philadelphia Mayor Michael A. Nutter
signed legislation that provides a credit to employers who offer
health benefits to same-sex couples, life partners and transgender employees.
It took less than 50 days from the date that City Council
introduced this bill for it to become law. This press release from the City of Philadelphia notes the
other highlights of the law:
Congratulations to the City of Philadelphia on becoming
the first city in the nation to offer this tax credit to employers.
