Pittsburgh City Council tabled proposed legislation that would have re instituted mileage reimbursement. The issue was tabled after multiple council members voiced their opposition to the bill. The legislation if enacted would have been retroactive meaning that council members would have been able to receive reimbursements as far back as March. In March mileage reimbursement was eliminated as a part of Councilman Rickey Burgess' legislation to limit the amount of take home vehicles available to city employee's.
