Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney is hoping his FY19 budget proposal, which would hike property and real estate transfer taxes, gets the stamp of approval from City Council in a bid to improve the city’s underfunded schools.

The $4.7 billion budget proposal, which would also reduce the wage tax at a slower pace than previously projected, comes with a tradeoff: funding the Philadelphia School District with almost $1 billion, a pledge the Kenney administration made after the dismantlement of the state-run School Reform Commission was announced.

On March 1, Kenney presented the budget before City Council, which plans to spend the next two months reviewing the proposal. In the meantime, the City of Philadelphia released a data visualization on Open Data Philly that allows users to explore the proposal by funding source, department and expense type.

The bubbly data viz, built by the city’s finance departments and the Office of Open Data and Digital Transformation, was first produced for Mayor Michael Nutter’s FY2016 budget proposal in 2015.

“We want to ensure that everyone, in every neighborhood, has equal access to City services and information,” Kenney said in a statement. “This budget visualization is great example of this commitment, as it brings our budget proposals to life in a simple and engaging way.”

The data is also available in a downloadable .CSV file and the reliable old PDF format.
