HARRISBURG, Pa. — A Commonwealth Court of Pennsylvania judge Thursday approved the financial recovery plan aimed at keeping Harrisburg, Pa. out of bankruptcy.
"The plan is confirmed," said Justice Bonnie Brigance Leadbetter, ruling from the bench. "This plan can succeed at giving Harrisburg a chance to go forward on a fiscally sound basis. A year and a half ago I was not too optimistic. Now I am highly optimistic."
