ICA Dissolution Clears Senate, Moves on to House
Legislation to allow for the immediate dissolution of the Intergovernmental Cooperation Authority (ICA) passed unanimously in the Senate last week and is now in a House committee. As we noted earlier this year the ICA has no money, no office space, and would be around to at least next June if not for an amendment to the ICA statute to allow for termination earlier than that.
Depending on how fast the bill moves in the House it is possible the termination could come before the start of the fiscal year. The state budget that was just signed into law does not contain a line item for the ICA (the 2017-18 budget had no appropriated amount).
The City of Pittsburgh was released from Act 47 financial recovery status in February.
