200644 0  COMMUNICATIONNovember 10, 2020 TO THE PRESIDENT AND MEMBERS OF THE COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF PHILADELPHIA: I am hereby returning with my signature Bill No. 200538, which was passed by Council at its session on October 29, 2020. This bill requires that the Police Department have a written policy prohibiting officers from using “less lethal force,” such as tear gas and rubber bullets, against individuals lawfully exercising their First Amendment rights. The Law Department identified a potential legal issue regarding enforceability of the bill due to the separation of powers. The Home Rule Charter vests all executive powers in the Mayor, and therefore City Council has no authority to direct the manner in which the Police Department carries out its duties. However, this issue is moot due to my Administration’s long-standing agreement with such a policy. That is why the Police Department’s policy already prohibits the use of force on individuals engaged in peaceful, constitutionally protected First Amendment activities, even if a protestor passively resists Police commands.

200645 0  COMMUNICATIONNovember 10, 2020 TO THE PRESIDENT AND MEMBERS OF THE COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF PHILADELPHIA: I am hereby returning without my signature Bill No. 200417, which was passed by Council at its session on October 29, 2020. This bill requires a permit applicant that is not a person (e.g. an LLC) to provide the full names and addresses of the entity’s responsible officers and principal beneficial owners. This information would be listed in the application, Registered Community Organization notification letter, Zoning Board of Adjustment (ZBA) poster, posted permit, and work site signage. As the Philadelphia City Planning Commission and Licenses & Inspections (L&I) explained to not only the bill sponsor, but also at the Committee hearing, this proposed change is significant. Upgrades to eCLIPSE, L&I’s permitting system, come at a substantial cost, while the bill will generate no additional revenue. Furthermore, it will take time for eCLIPSE to be updated to allow for proper intake and distribution of the new information. Despite this, my administration’s request to delay implementatREAD AND FILED   Action details Not available
