In three separate sewage-line ruptures in 2012 and 2014, millions of gallons of untreated waste spilled into Valley Forge National Historical Park and a federally protected tributary of the Schuylkill. In an agreement between Tredyffrin Township and Pennsylvania's Department of Environmental Protection late last year, Tredyffrin officials had until early 2016 to decide on a long-term plan to prevent more sewage spills. Township officials decided this summer to install a new pipe that will fit into the existing Wilson Road Force Main sewage pipeline, which is nearly 40 years old. This week, Tredyffrin's board of supervisors approved an agreement to share the costs of fixing the pipeline with the four other municipalities the pipeline serves.

The Philadelphia Redevelopment Authority and the University City Science Center reached an agreement that gives the Science Center 10 more years to complete the development of its 17-acre campus along Market Street between 34th and 39th Streets, the Science Center said. The agreement also allows for a three-year extension beyond the 10, but the Science Center would have to pay a fee to exercise it. The RDA had moved in 2008 to seize the lots, which comprise most of the south side of the 3800 block of Market Street, because the Science Center failed to fulfill a 2006 agreement to start development by June 2007 and finished it by May 2009.

WASHINGTON - Even with one of the largest hurdles to an immigration overhaul overcome, optimistic lawmakers on Sunday cautioned they had not finished work on a bill that would provide a path to citizenship for 11 million illegal immigrants. The AFL-CIO and the pro-business U.S. Chamber of Commerce reached a deal late Friday that would allow tens of thousands of low-skill workers into the country to fill jobs in construction, restaurants, and hotels. Yet despite the unusual agreement between the two powerful lobbying groups, lawmakers from both parties conceded that the negotiations were not finished.

The Philadelphia Orchestra Association and Kimmel Center are in accord on the main points of a revamped relationship, but have not yet fleshed out their agreement on paper, lawyers for both sides said Friday in U.S. Bankruptcy Court. The two groups have agreed to a "term sheet that fully resolves all the issues," but "it's not binding yet because it requires documentation," said orchestra bankruptcy lawyer Lawrence G. McMichael. The terms, he reported, have been approved by the boards of both groups.

  "Never laugh at live dragons," warns the protagonist of J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit , a reminder to avoid premature celebrations before an adventure has truly ended. It's a timely proverb this month as many observers rush to declare an end to the regulatory battle between the Philadelphia Parking Authority and Uber, which wrapped up just in time for the city to play host to the Democratic National Convention. Unfortunately, the dragons are not yet dispatched, and the adventure is far from concluded.

Andrea Constand did not break her confidential settlement agreement with Bill Cosby by cooperating with detectives in an investigation that led to criminal charges against the entertainer, a federal judge has ruled. The ruling, by District Judge Eduardo C. Robreno, dismissed portions of Cosby's bid to make Constand return the money he paid her a decade ago to settle sexual-assault claims. Cosby contended that the agreement prevented any party from disclosing details about the lawsuit or a 2005 criminal investigation into the allegations.

The frosty relationship between Uber and the Philadelphia Parking Authority seemed to have thawed Thursday, when the two parties explained the terms of their temporary agreement on the ride-sharing app's legality in Philadelphia County, valid through Sept. 30. That 12-weeks reprieve should give some relief to commuters struggling with SEPTA's severe service disruption, caused by the sidelining this week of 120 railcars for repairs to serious structural flaws. One taxicab drivers' representative said the agreement has "devastated" the local industry.

HARRISBURG - With four days until the deadline for a state budget - and the memory of last year's impasse still raw - Gov. Wolf and the Republican-dominated legislature have no deal and no face-to-face talks scheduled, and have shown little evidence of the political will for election-year tax hikes. Legislators left the Capitol on Thursday without even resolving a basic question: how much money they plan to spend in the fiscal year that begins July 1, let alone how much new revenue they need to raise and where it will come from.

Airbnb, the online marketplace where people can list their homes for short-term rentals, has agreed to collect Pennsylvania's 6 percent hotel occupancy tax and remit proceeds to the state, beginning July 1.

The hotel occupancy tax applies when renting out a property - including a house, room, or apartment - to a guest for periods of less than 30 days.

WITH $9.7 billion in capital projects being proposed by the Kenney administration over the next six years, every taxpayer should know what a Project Labor Agreement is, because PLAs, as they are commonly called, will determine who gets those billions in public money. A PLA is a collective bargaining agreement between a government agency and labor organizations. PLAs establish the terms of employment for specific construction projects. Building trade unions say PLAs are good. Non-union shops say they're bad. That's because PLAs do two things: They keep unionized workers from engaging in labor disputes that can drive up the costs on taxpayer-funded construction projects, and they often keep nonunionized workers from ever getting on the job in the first place.

Veteran prosecutors, using such words as extraordinary and unusual, said they were puzzled by the promise by former Montgomery County District Attorney Bruce L. Castor Jr. never to prosecute comedian Bill Cosby. Such deals rarely happen, the prosecutors said, simply because it is impossible to know what new information might emerge. And when the deals do emerge, they said, it is critical to get the agreement in writing. Castor testified Tuesday at a hearing on the aggravated indecent-assault charge against Cosby that his 2005 announcement not to file criminal charges amounted to a pledge that his office, and his successors, had dropped the case forever.
