(Philadelphia) -- Governor Corbett is encouraging Philadelphia City Council to authorize borrowing of $50 million to help ensure city schools open on time next month.
Corbett issued a statement Thursday that also called on the council to extend the sales tax.
City council members have expressed strong opposition to the borrowing plan, and have produced their own proposal to raise money selling surplus school buildings.
Corbett says the school district also needs an agreement with the teachers' union that would include savings and academic reforms.
