Hearing for promoter bill
The Finance Committee of Philadelphia City Council will hold a hearing at 9:30 a.m. June 9 on a bill that has faced opposition from the nightlife community.
The measure, introduced by Councilmen Bill Greenlee and Darrell Clarke in April, mandates that party promoters meet certain criteria before being allowed to hold their events. Critics say the bill is too broad and could cripple Philadelphia nightlife.
The hearing will be held in City Council Chambers in City Hall.
