Pittsburgh's City Council on Wednesday voted to delay by one week a final decision on the idea of a 1 percent tax on tuition, a tax strenuously opposed by area colleges and their students, The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported. The idea behind the tax -- which is being championed by Mayor Luke Ravenstahl -- is to deal with a looming deficit. College leaders have said that they are willing to talk about new ways to assist the city, but not with the tax idea in play.
